Asian, Woman, Hardworking, Practical, Optimistic
Keeping projects on track with grace and efficiency is Mary Ngo to a tee. Mary joined the Be Equitable team as a Project Consultant and her impact was instantly felt for our clients. In her role, Mary is responsible for serving as a liaison to clients, managing the day-to-day activities. She also knows that relationships matter when you’re building community and spends time investing in not only getting to know our clients on a deeper level, but even our own team. That extra step is how she is able to see through any problem that arises and find a quick solution to remedy it. Her philosophy at Be Equitable is that work should be done with integrity – to people, mission, strategy, and policies and processes. Mary is drawn to IDEA work because she wants to make the world a better place for her children and she enjoys doing that one client at a time.
What belief took you the longest to unlearn?
It is still a work in progress, but the belief in perfection – the perfect career, the perfect family, etc. – is one thing that has taken me the longest to unlearn.
Do you think people can really change?
Yes! I think that people really can change, but it takes conscious effort and time.
