Women are the Glue that Hold Society Together - Join Us for Their Stories
Family members, neighbors, teachers, mentors... all have helped to shape the strong, independent women we see today... but that doesn't mean that life hasn't come with its own set of struggles, pitfalls, and setbacks. In fact, those are what make us stronger so that we can overcome the next hurdle!
In an effort to share in that solidarity, On Technology Partners created the Women STaRs Podcast, where we interview strong, determined women about their Struggles, Triumphs, and Reflections on life and career. Interviews are full of inspiration, encouragement, helpful tips, and precious moments of "that's just what I needed to hear."

This week on the Women STaRs Podcast, we have the pleasure of talking with Jenice Contreras, the Executive Director of the Northeast Ohio Hispanic Center for Economic Development. Jenice was born in Puerto Rico, is bilingual, bicultural and is proud of her heritage. Through her key involvement in CentroVilla25, an adaptive reuse of a vacant warehouse and office building, Jenice is a driving force around the neighborhood redevelopment efforts in Cleveland’s Clark-Fulton neighborhood, the most densely populated Hispanic enclave in the state of Ohio. She has many achievements to commend her, such as features from prominent publications like Crain’s, other awards and community involvements, as well as her advocacy for others and dedication to helping her community.
Listen to this fantastic episode and glean some stunning advice, great stories, and the inspiration you just might be missing in your life. Jenice shares with us the experience of being a young mother and raising children while building a career; how she learned to give herself grace; finding people in her she-tribe who fill her cup; and meaning it when she says “no.” You’ll not want to miss hearing about her greatest success that she’s currently going through: helping to strengthen the neighborhood she grew up in and making it more equitable.
