Great reporting by Bridget Hickey in this interview with industry pioneer Cynthia DiBartolo, Esq., 9/11 survivor and founder of Tigress Financial Partners, the nation’s only disabled and woman-owned financial services firm.

See, for example, DiBartolo’s wisdom on interviewing individuals with autisim:

So I have to make them comfortable and say, it’s OK if you want to look out the window while we talk, because I am not judging them on that. To me, their disability is their strength. I need to understand and recognize that because everyone who comes in here with a difference drives diversity of thought, drives innovation here.
