We marked International Women’s Day in part by attending a special luncheon at the Asian Chamber of Commerce. Malisha Patel, mom of two boys and CEO of two(!) Memorial Hermann hospitals, was the keynote speaker. She shared heartfelt stories of her life and leadership journey. Thanks to Malisha for the infectious inspiration!
It’s time again for the annual HBJ Landmark Awards. Two projects we were privileged to work on were named Finalists. The ambitious $55 million St. Martin’s Episcopal Church expansion by Jackson & Ryan is a Public Assembly Finalist. The Arbor School by Studio Red Architects is an Education Finalist. Congratulations!
As a business with all female employees, Women’s History Month is a big deal here at PRISM. Jing Johnson conscientiously structured the business to cater to working moms. She wanted to create a working environment where attending kids’ school parties is equally as important as serving clients. Giving female employees such flexibility is an easy way for employers to empower women to contribute to their fullest. President Jimmy Carter proclaimed Women’s History Week in 1980. In 1987, Congress designated March as Women’s History Month.
