An insignificant number of women working in the corporate world ever make it to the top. This is a male dominated world and many people have held onto the stereotype that only men have the capability to handle executive roles. Helane Morrison has defied expectations by rising to the top of the corporate ladder. She has done this with all odds placed against her including biasness and gender disparity.
Since her early days, she has been devoted to the fight against corruption and all other ills that happen in business organizations. Of particular interest to her has been the protection of those who are most likely to be sleaze victims. This has mostly been done through the public disclosure of unethical brokers in the stock market. She has also greatly helped to clean up workstations by carrying out independent investigations aimed at pinpointing those who are involved in any kind of underhand deals.
For over 30 years, Helane has made a name for herself owing to her determination and impeccability, which has seen her refrain from participating an all the murk that exists in the financial services sector. After the Great Recession in 2008, she was called upon to carry out investigations. She came up with a damning report, which was an eye opener on the prevalent rot in the stock markets. This helped bring to book those involved in scams. Those found culpable ranged from prominent executives to some of the largest corporations in America.
