Untold Story #83: Meet Janice Sutherland World's Greatest Women

    • Business

This woman became the caregiver of her siblings at a very young age. She was the oldest of 6 children who were being raised by a single mom in the UK. After high school, she was told black girls didn’t go to college but she went anyway. It wasn’t easy.  She was already a mother herself and her marriage was abusive, but she kept going. She worked, went to school and eventually got a Masters Degree and, afterwards, secured various senior management roles. Then a second marriage took her to the Caribbean. Here she found an executive role in telecom in what was a very male dominated environment. Yet, with each new challenge, she polished her leadership skills and her determination. Today she is walking a path to greatness as she helps ambitious women challenge the status quo and navigate their careers without compromise. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Janice Sutherland.
