Helane Morrison has become the business executive that other aspiring corporate female executives follow. She has become someone that has made a career in an area that many women have failed to consider. She has become one of the best corporate investigators in the San Francisco area, and I believe that many females are now following her a path because she has been so successful and this area.
I have considered the leadership role of a lot of other compliance officers and female executives in general. This is a unique role for females primarily because it is a field that is dominated by males. I thought it was very interesting that Morrison wouldn’t make the decision to take on this type of career after building a lucrative career as a lawyer. Many may say that Morrison had already achieved more than most women because she was working with the law firm where she became a partner.
What Morrison has managed to do over the years is build up a resume that no one could deny. She continued to work hard even though she had already made partner. That is why she has been recognized as an inspiring leader for many other females (WSJ article). The way that she motivates others is through her dedication to her craft. She clearly loves to investigate companies, and this has become something that she grew familiar with during her time with the law firm.
I have seen how she has grown through her the years, and I believe that this work that she has done a lot of prep work to get to where she is today.
There are a lot of women that are determined to succeed in the corporate world, and Helane Morrison has set quite the blueprint for many others that are trying to reach beyond that glass ceiling that has been placed before them.
Morrison represents the women that have picked interesting careers and buckled down hard to learn as much as they can. Helane was actually born on the east coast in New York, but she saw where she could benefit from an education in California. I believe that she also saw how such could rise in ranks as a compliance officer with the SEC.
