Dr. Nancy occasionally speaks to selected groups on women empowerment, self-confidence and the importance of women supporting other women.
Having earned numerous awards, Dr. Nancy was honored with other women, including Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, at the 2018 Canales Project in Washington DC. She serves on various boards of directors, and chairs the board for Take the Lead, Inc. whose mission is to prepare, develop, inspire and propel women to leadership parity across all sectors by 2025. She is a major supporter of the innovative program 50 Women Can Change the World––currently operating in media and entertainment, healthcare and finance––and the international work of Convoy of Hope.
