Darlene Shamsid-Deen knows what it means to balance family and work. As a woman who worked at IBM Corporation for 35 years, Shamsid-Deen created a life for herself, one where seeing a Black woman working at a corporation was still a surprise.

“First, let me say that I have been very blessed by our Creator to have had many extraordinary experiences in my life,” says Shamsid-Deen. “Working for IBM was one of them. In the mid-1980s, I was married with children when I started at IBM.”
