Honoring Women's History Month
Updated: Mar 3, 2021
This March we join women across the nation as we celebrate Women’s History Month (March). In doing so, we also want to recognize those who are making history, like the many individuals featured in this edition of my “Intergistic Intel News Magazine.”

These ladies are being featured because of the positions they hold across numerous industries—Heath Care, Manufacturing, Consulting, Engineering Services, Security, Oil and Gas, Public Relations, Education, Hospitality, Real Estate and Canibus. Each is making her mark.
Please know there are many, many other individuals who could be included. Some were already noted in one of my former issues--Veteran’s Day, Start-Up Week, Health Care, and there are more to come.
