Connie Harshaw: Walking Out Real Faith in the Real World

The world can be a scary place at times, and as much as we need our faith to get through, it can be a challenge when walking out our faith in circles that are hostile. But when we shrink back and sacrifice our faith to please others or fit in, we give up the power that God gives us to make a positive difference and exact change. We give up who God created us to be.

Connie Matthews Harshaw is a powerhouse who knows how crucial having faith is in a world that is not always welcoming. Connie shares her experiences around the world from Capitol Hill to the United Nations and how she always looks to God. This is a real, honest conversation about race, gender, finding common ground, being truthful and walking in faith.

Connie Matthews Harshaw began her career in public service with the U S. Navy at the Newport News Shipyard. She retired from the Federal government as a member of the Senior Executive Service after a 30-year career and becoming the agency’s first female African American SES.
