LEADING THROUGH KINDNESS AND COMPASSION Lessons from Eleanor Roosevelt
First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt continues to be a role model for women today, as she became a trailblazer for civil rights and women’s rights. Working through the toughest years in America’s history — the Great Depression and World War II — she delivered her positive views to the public through radio, newspapers, magazines, and public speaking. “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” she reminded people. A woman who overcame shyness, self-doubt, and criticism, she became a politician, diplomat, and activist, and was dubbed the “first lady of the world” because of her global social justice work.
