Read Dana’s interview about her trailblazing attitude around social justice in the latest from Aspire For Equality.
Q. Does your entrepreneurial background help you do this? Is it that entrepreneurial risk taker in you that enables you to take this big social cause on?
As an entrepreneur — [Marlowe is the Founder and Principal Partner of Accessibility Partners, an IT Accessibility Consulting firm] — there are always elements of being able to take those risks and knowing you might fail. That’s part of the process, so I accept those terms. My brain is wired to view situations in two questions: What’s the problem and what is solution? Then I have follow-up questions: How can we improve this? How can we do this better? How can we provide a more impactful, effective solution? That’s where I come to the table with my views and my perspectives. The risk taking is inherently present in most entrepreneurs.
