Happy Women’s History Month! Every year, March is designated to honor women’s contributions to American history throughout the years. 

In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re sharing stories of our Titus teammates who are promoting excellence in our operations and inspiring other women to follow in their steps.

Today we are highlighting a Director on our Operations team, Barb Wachs. She has been a part of our Titus Talent Strategies team for almost 8 years. Barb has been instrumental in helping us expand our healthcare recruiting efforts, and her time with us has been invaluable. Learn more about what Women’s History Month means to Barb below:

What does Women’s History Month mean to you? 

It’s a time to honor and celebrate the women who have persisted against all odds to change the viewpoint on what’s possible.  I love learning about the women who paved the way for future generations, encouraging others to stand in their truth while extending hope that we can all make a larger impact than we anticipated.

What can women in leadership like you do to embrace equity and empower the next generation of women in workplace? 

I encourage women in leadership to mentor other women at all levels, and to build a network of supportive women to encourage each other to do hard things. Don’t be afraid to share your story to motivate others and create an easier path by shutting down biases and providing a positive example. Rise to the occasion with an assumption of why not me rather than why me.

Who are the most influential women in your personal life?

There are so many!

My friends who had children before me greatly influenced the type of mom I am today.  I’ve had the pleasure of having many female bosses throughout my career. One boss demonstrated a positive female leader who was able to balance work and  life with young kids, while focusing on continual growth in her career.  She stayed true to herself and told me time and again to focus on the work not the chatter.  My mom always encouraged me without limits on what I could do and achieve, celebrating each accomplishment along the way with amazement.

What female public figure, past or present, inspires you and why? 

I’m inspired by the working moms… They balance raising kids and growing in their professions which can feel like an overwhelming task. These women inspire me daily to keep going, prioritizing different needs at rotating times, and acknowledging when you need support along the way.

What piece of advice would you give to women finding their way in the workplace/leadership role? 

Find a mentor, someone who inspires you and will coach you throughout your career.  Surround yourself with ambitious influencers that will challenge you to step outside your comfort level, growth occurs when you are uncomfortable! Trust your instincts to know when you aren’t seated at the right table.

At Titus Talent Strategies, we are surrounded by an incredible team of powerful women. Stay tuned throughout the month for more highlights of our Titus women.
