(Stephanie in action – on a Zoom call)

TueNight 10: Stephanie Battaglino

Age: 62.

Basic bio: Stephanie is a speaker, consultant, trainer, and activist for workplace equality and inclusion for transgender and non-binary persons. Her first book, Reflections From Both Sides of the Glass Ceiling: Finding My True Self in Corporate America, will be released in May.  

Beyond the bio: I always knew that I was never going to be one of those people who worked in corporate until their late 60’s, or God forbid, 70. I have other things I want to do with my life, so making the decision to leave the corporate world after 40 years and pursue my true calling – and to do it on my own terms – is indeed a blessing. I am very proud of the new chapter of my life that I have been able to create with my wife Mari by my side. It’s been quite a ride, and I’m far from finished!

What makes you a grown-ass lady? Living a life in two genders – on my own terms.
