Hello, I’m Pierre Habis of Union Bank. Diversity is one of our most closely held values. This is why we are proud to honor Local Heroes in celebration of Women's History Month. Let’s meet one of our honorees. BARBARA BRY: I'm Barbara Bry, and I'm the Chief Operating Officer for Blackbird Ventures. Outside of my professional life, my passion has been leveling the playing field for women and girls in business, health care and politics. I'm a big believer in women having control of their lives, and it all starts with having control of your body. I don't think it matters what you pick, it's that you pick something you feel passionate about. My husband and I are long time entrepreneurs, and we love teaching at UCSD. We believe that today everyone has to think like an entrepreneur; whether it's in your own business, a large organization or a non-profit. ANNOUNCER: This moment has been made possible by Union Bank in partnership with KPBS
