White also serves as the executive director for the Skye Baloo Carnegie Institute. SBCI works with overlooked groups of adults with autism and ADHD, focusing on the uniqueness and brilliance, rather than on the disorder. She also volunteers as the mentorship program coordinator for Dress for Success Southern Nevada, MAPS Program “Mentoring to Achieve Professional Success.”
“I’ve often been asked, ‘What is your why?’ My answer is easy: my daughters, granddaughters, and nieces, and all women and young girls struggling to find their voice and a seat at the table.” Crystal believes that the role of women in a society is the best indicator of a nation’s economic development potential and standard of living.
“Women are empowered when they are able to access opportunities without limitations and restrictions. We must work together as a society to empower and raise the status of women and young girls by education, training and creating awareness. When women succeed, nations thrive and prosper!”
