Assistant Secretary reflects on career
In recognition of Women’s History Month and of International Women’s Day on March 8, EARN is dedicating this month’s weekly e-blasts to highlighting outstanding women with disabilities.
This week, EARN features Kathleen Martinez, Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Office of Disability Employment Policy and the 2013 recipient of the Henry Viscardi Achievement Award, which recognizes the work of leaders with disabilities. EARN staff recently spoke with Ms. Martinez about her accomplishments.
“I think when we do something successful and are successful as women, people assume it’s because we’re a “superwoman” and because we are special,” Ms. Martinez said. “Really, I’m not special. I grew up with the expectation that I would work, and so I worked hard to get to the place that I’m at.”
