Dorothy, Change Agent
President of McDonald’s Women’s Operators Network | Owner operator since 1998 | 16 Phoenix locations
“I’m really committed to the voices of women in our system.”
As part of McDonald’s owner-operator leadership, Dorothy spends much of her day talking and listening, to uncover issues and how she can advocate for her employees, company and fellow owner operators to make the system better. She is committed to maintaining a respectful place—a place where you’re proud to work or refer someone for a job. Where it’s safe for people to re-enter the workforce. And where people can learn and grow. Dorothy emphasizes how important access to education has been to her career, and notes the opportunity it now affords her as an employer to help the people she leads. In fact, when asked for examples of how McDonald’s has helped people to grow, Dorothy says she has hundreds.
