On October 15, as part of our ongoing mission to empower women, My Sister’s Place Women’s Center was honored to have Ms. Claudette Campbell speak to the women in the Families that Work program about developing good work ethics and of their value in the workplace.  Ms. Campbell has had the privilege of learning and serving under the leadership of the Honorable Kweisi Mfume, who is a former Congressman in Baltimore’s seventh district and a previous President/CEO for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

Ms. Campbell has taken what she has learned through her work and life experiences, and presently holds a position in the private sector as a Payroll Specialist where she has grown to be a successful and respected businesswoman.  She captivated and encouraged her sisters at My Sister’s Place with a dynamic testimony using a quote from President Barrack Obama, “Yes We Can”.  Her message focused on how someone’s past does not have to dictate what their future will be, and that in life you have to work hard to build respect for yourself and to gain it from others.
