Senior Living News features Ecumen President & CEO Kathryn Roberts (left) and COO Shelley Kendrick (right) in an article headlined “The Benefits of a Woman’s Touch,” which explores the role women leaders play in today’s aging services profession.

Writer Cheryl Slavinsky notes that Ecumen bucks the national trend with a mostly female leadership team. “Women bring special qualities and unique perspective to all careers,” Kathryn tells her. “The tension between differing viewpoints and life experiences is what makes businesses stronger. Having women leaders in the senior living industry is as important to us as it is to all businesses in all sectors.”
