“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it’s in hot water.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
Louette is currently a member of the steering committee on the Women Donors Network Opportunity and Equality Collective, whose goal is to ensure that all women workers, particularly those who are most vulnerable, are free from sexual harassment, abuse, violence, and inequality in the workplace and have opportunities to succeed and thrive, both economically and personally.
Louette’s personal experience working in traditionally male held jobs since the early 1970’s has given her a birds eye view of the challenges women have faced in the workplace. She was employed by the City & County of San Francisco for over 20 years, and was a Muni Bus Operator and then a San Francisco Police Officer. After retirement, Louette served on the Commission on the Status of Women.
Besides volunteering at various organizations, Louette enjoys golfing, boating, reading, and playing with her new Golden Retriever puppy, Louie.
