Show Notes

On this episode of Women STaRs, we have an inspiring conversation with Inez James, Supervisor at the Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission. Beyond her career, she is also the President of the Lorain Club of The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, and she was also appointed by the Ohio Secretary of State, Frank LaRose, to serve as the first African American and first female to hold the Democrat Party seat on the Lorain County Board of Elections.

Join us as Inez gives moving advice and dives into everything from grief, to divorce, to giving back to the community and even more. Inez’s perspective on her struggles and triumphs contains valuable wisdom we all can gain from. She covers many topics, such as drawing on her support system while processing her father’s battle with AIDS, the power of forgiveness during her divorce, and so much more! Inez’s emphasis on community and living your truth is truly introspective and carries throughout the episode—listen in!

“Community support is so important when going through trials…I learned how to listen and help other people dealing with grief because of how I was able to walk through my journey with support.”

“That’s the way I worked through my trauma: I got connected. I got involved.”

“When you serve others with the purest of heart and for the reason of the mission—besides it coming back to you in so many different ways, I get so much joy from doing that.”

“The power to forgive…knowing that you have it in you to do that, to truly forgive, I think that’s a big triumph. That has given me so freedom and liberty and has opened so many other doors.”
