Dr. Ludy Green has such a powerful story that is shaped by her own life experiences. Her background in human resource management has lead to the successful establishment of the only employment agency for victims of domestic abuse, and aptly prepared her to successfully lobby the US Congress to pass national legislation protecting the rights of domestic violence victims and their dependents.
Dr. Ludy Green’s keynote presentation was the highpoint for our conference. Her own story of growing up in domestic violence, breaking free, starting Second Chance Employment Services, and successfully lobbying the US Congress to pass a key provision of the Violence Against Women (VAWA) captivated the audience from start to finish!
Thank you for your outstanding presentation to the Military Families Learning Network. Our members were empowered by learning the signs of domestic violence in the workplace, valuable resources for HR managers and colleagues to support victims suffering from abuse, and the model of Second Chance Employment Services to provide long-term meaningful employment as a means for victims to permanently break free from abuse.
“Dr. Green has unique experiences and insights into violence against women and children globally that no other speaker is able to share. She is the perfect speaker to address issues of gender violence around the world. Her personal stories are moving and heartfelt and truly make an impact on students. Additionally, she is not only able to talk about gender violence, she is able to provide concrete solutions to ending it. It is evident that Dr. Green cares about the students she is presenting to. Some speakers come to campus, speak, and leave but Dr. Green is interested in making deeper connections with students that extend beyond her speaking engagement. Lehigh University was honored and thankful to have Dr. Ludy Green on campus and we are in awe of the incredible work she is doing around the world for such an important issue.
Ludy Green weaves an uplifting roadmap of how domestic abuse victims can build new lives through the empowering magic of financial freedom. Green stymied long odds to become America’s leading public-policy advocate for escaping the chains of abuse through gainsaying employment. Green also relates compelling stories of abuse victims her nonprofit helped rise up. An amazing keynote presentation!
Dr. Green’s keynote speech was the highlight of our conference, cogently presenting the global stain of domestic violence on our communities and our mission to combat it. She moved our audience in sharing her own story of growing up in domestic violence, establishing the first employment agency in the U.S. for victims, and the power of integrated partnerships to permanently free victims from abuse.
