From the CEO's Desk

Have any of you ever thought you were misjudged or portrayed in a way that was unfair? It didn't feel very good did it? Unfortunately women are misrepresented in the media so often that many of us don't even recognize the damage this does to us and others.


We are proud to co-sponsor on November 13th a documentary entitled Miss Representation. MORE
