    "Speak Up! Pledge" with Bonnie Low Kramen

    in Business

    The Speak Up! Pledge initiative is straightforward and simple. The Pledge is a call to action because speaking up is the #1 challenge in the workplace — especially for women, but this applies to men, too. Moreover, women too often remain silent about important issues that affect them, choosing instead to rely on hope that problems will resolve themselves. They will not. The workplace of 2015 is demanding and complicated for both assistants and managers, and it is only getting more so. Electronic communication is great, but it does not take the place of talking with one another. Having conversations is the only way to positively navigate the issues of our 24/7 work life.


    About the guest: Bonnie Low-Kramen’s career for the past 25 years was as the Personal Assistant to celebrity couple Olympia Dukakis (Academy Award, Moonstruck, Steel Magnolias) and Louis Zorich (Mad About You.) She is also a co-founder and former President of New York Celebrity Assistants (NYCA), a networking and support organization for New York-based celebrity assistants. As an author, Bonnie has written many articles which have been published in newsletters around the world.


    A New Jersey native, Bonnie holds a B.A. degree from Rutgers University in English and Theatre. She worked in public relations and marketing for not-for-profit theatres in Chicago, Atlanta and Houston before returning to New Jersey where she became Public Relations Director at Olympia Dukakis’ Whole Theatre in Montclair, NJ
