In 2022, three of our industry’s emerging mothers provided their perspectives on motherhood and women's leadership in “Emerging Mothers: A Unique Perspective for the Equipment Leasing and Finance Industry.” For that article we spoke with Lexie Dressman, now Legal Counsel at DLL and Mom to Adaline, 6, and Wallace, 3; Xiang Ji, Commercial Risk Senior Manager at Toyota Industries Commercial Finance and Mom to Xavier, 5, and Athena, 16 months; and Emily Latham-Bolt, Head of Human Resources at DLL and Mom to Brynn, 3.
A year later, we revisit Lexie, Xiang and Emily to get an update.
Below, we ask them about their experiences as working mothers and what
changes they have noticed over the past year. We also review their
recommendations to help emerging mothers stay and thrive in our
industry, such as providing flexibility and diversity training, hiring
women leaders to serve as role models, and more.
