Women in Leadership

Life coach and executive trainer Candy Barone empowers women in the plumbing industry. 

Last year at the Women of ASPE (WOA) event held during the 2016 ASPE Convention & Expo in Phoenix, attendees were introduced to an array of women who demonstrated and spoke about strength and power. 

In 2014, the ASPE Board of Directors recognized the disproportionate number of women members in the organization and formed the WOA group. The core mission of WOA is to engage, retain and advance women in the plumbing design industry, through education, leadership development and networking opportunities. The official launch of WOA took place at the Women in Leadership Forum at the 2016 Convention.

All of the speakers were unique, and inspirational in their own ways, and Candy Barone was no exception. Known as the ‘pull-no-punches accountability powerhouse,’ and CEO of You Empowered Strong, Barone is an executive trainer and coach, international speaker and Amazon bestselling author.

Her presentation on leadership grabbed everyone’s attention and left the room of women in the industry feeling empowered.

Barone was named a 2014-15 VIP Woman of the Year by the National Association of Professional Women, was the recipient of the 2015 Public Speakers Association Local Collaborator Award, and was nominated as a 2015 Profile in Power Central Texas Woman of Influence.

Barone also has been showcased in CNN, The Austin Stateman, Austin Business Journal, Be the Boss Magazine, OffBeat Business Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, ciLiving TV, along with numerous radio shows and podcasts.

In addition, she serves as a call leader for the Evolutionary Business Council, a Partnering Director for the Public Speakers Association, and a regular columnist for OffBeatBusiness Magazine.

We look forward to getting to know Barone with a future interview, but for now, we encourage to take a look at her work and reach out if you have any questions.
