A few days after I left my office and left my house in a few days, I saw a young woman in the lobby of a toy company in the Philippines.
She was wearing a pink shirt with a bright pink bow, pink gloves and black shoes.
It was her first day of work.
She had arrived from an international airport in Hong Kong with her parents and a suitcase.
I don’t know if they knew who she was or where she was going.
I was just trying to help her and make her feel welcome.
But as she walked through the lobby, the young woman’s face fell.
She looked at me with a blank expression.
I didn’t know what to say.
What she said shocked me.
She said, “Oh my God, I can’t believe this is happening here.
Why do they have to do this to us?”
She didn’t say why she thought she was being discriminated against, but she felt a deep sense of injustice.
What’s more, I had been on the receiving end of this kind of discrimination.
I had spent my entire adult life in a company that made toys for children and adolescents.
I worked in marketing and sales, where I had always felt comfortable in my own skin.
But at the same time, I was a proud parent of three children, and my children had grown up in a world where discrimination against women was commonplace.
I also felt that my career was not in any way being threatened, so why should I feel differently now?
As soon as I heard the young lady’s story, I realized what I had witnessed.
I decided to do something about it.
My first step was to ask the CEO of the company, Mr. Jorge Villanueva.
He was a well-known Filipino figure in the toy industry, and I figured that he would be able to help.
After an initial meeting, Mr Villanuesa came over to my office in Manila, and he introduced me to his boss, Jose Rizal.
I told Mr Rizas that I wanted to report my concerns to him, but I would need to be careful.
I would also need to avoid being too friendly with the CEO.
I explained that the situation I was describing was very similar to the one I had encountered when I worked at a toy factory in Taiwan.
I wanted him to take my concerns seriously and investigate it.
I told Mr Villas that there were several things that I had seen and heard in the news regarding sexual harassment and gender discrimination at toy factories in China.
I hoped that I would be listened to and treated with respect, but at the end of the day, I still had to keep my mouth shut.
I felt like my job was in jeopardy.
Mr Risas listened to my concerns and took the time to tell me that the toys he made were made by Taiwan’s largest toy manufacturer, Taipei Toys.
I agreed to work with him to make sure that these toys would be made in Taiwan and that he wouldn’t try to stop me from doing what I wanted.
Mr Rizals first steps in this new venture was to speak with my boss, who I assumed would be the president of the firm.
The president was an older man who had been a member of the Taiwan-based toy company for many years.
I asked him if he had any concerns about my story, but he said he would not be speaking to me.
He seemed to be genuinely concerned about my experience.
When I arrived back at my office, I told my boss that I was not happy to be coming back to my workplace and that I did not want to come back any time soon.
He responded that he could help me resolve the issue.
We had just finished lunch, and as I left the office, Mr Ritzas called me and told me that he was coming to see me.
I asked him why he would come to my place.
He told me, “You know, it’s my turn to make you happy.”
I said, I didn�t want to do anything to hurt you, but my boss would not listen to me and my boss was a man with a big family, so I felt very vulnerable.
Mr Villas then told me he would like to meet me in the afternoon to see if I was willing to meet him face to face.
I went to the door, and after greeting him, he introduced himself as the president and invited me to come to his office.
He greeted me by name and said that he hoped that we could be friends.
He then told the president about the situation and we began a conversation about the history of sexual harassment in the industry.
As we were talking, Mr Cid said, ‘Mr Risos boss wants to know how you feel about this.’
I told him that I didn`t want him to think that I were a bad person for doing
