Moderator and President, Alliance to Save Energy, Paula Glover: This year, this March for International Women's Day, the theme was, Choose to Challenge. Tell us about a time that either you had to choose to challenge and or someone chose to challenge for you.
CEO, Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, Amy Andryszak: I've only been in INGAA for about eight months. I'm one of those crazy people who decided to take on a new job and a new challenge in the middle of the pandemic.
I want to answer Paula's question about choosing to challenge. When she raised this, my first thought was, what was my moment? Did I have this great moment where I beat back the patriarchy?
