When Suzy Hrabovsky first interviewed for a job at the WBC, she didn’t get it. She figured that the CEED founder and then-executive director, the late Sylvia Ray, didn’t like her. So Suzy turned back to her other career until another opportunity to join CEED cropped up 10 years later. Turns out, Suzy was wrong. Sylvia did like her—quite a bit, in fact—and after three years of serving as a board member, Sylvia asked Suzy to take the reins as the executive director of CEED. Now 20 years since that first failed interview, Suzy continues to champion women’s empowerment through economic means. In a continuation of the last Meet the Staff episode, this special installment of Destination Success features CEED executive director Suzy Hrabovsky. She shares what inspires her work, how she kept herself and her team going through this pandemic, and how she honors the memory of her mentor and friend—Sylvia Ray.
