Rhonda Leeman Taylor is taking the same competitive fight and lessons of leadership, teamwork,and perseverance she learned on the ice to beat an even tougher opponent – gender discrimination in our communities and business. As young female hockey player she learned that female athletes, like female workers, just don’t get treated equally or fairly. They don’t get the same pay or the same respect, on or off the field. In this episode Rhonda shares her #MeToo moment when she was propositioned by a male president. She laughed at her assailant, and that awkward moment resulted in a “golden handshake,” effectively ending her career path. At that moment Rhonda skated from the ice to HR, pursuing her life-long passion to end gender discrimination.
Rhonda’s new book Offside was just released last week (Oct 5).
