“Kusari Berisha recently earned the Athena Young Professional Award. Kusari lived through the war in Kosovo as a teenager, and after the war she spent time working with refugees to help reunite families,” according to Business Journals.
Kusari has been instrumental in the team partnership with Lyft and Take The Lead Day.
“I’m especially delighted to welcome Lyft as a sponsor of Take The Lead Day because they truly do care about ‘lifting women to parity,’” says Feldt.
“My first Lyft driver was a woman, a rarity among drivers, so I asked her why she chose to drive. She said she could set her hours and as a single mom that was helpful. Recently another female Lyft driver told me she was saving for her dream to open her own call center,” Feldt says.
“In both instances, they spontaneously mentioned that the company treated them well. I want Take The Lead to align with companies like this and I am grateful that Lyft feels the same about supporting Take The Lead’s mission,” Feldt says.
