Insights from Irene Caso
Irene was recent appointment to the Young Women’s General Advisory Council of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Irene, alongside 13 other women, advises and counsels the council, fostering an environment of support, celebration, and learning. Notably, five young single adults were included on the Council, highlighting their dedication to understanding the needs of the younger generation.
One of Irene’s most relatable messages from our conversation revolves around the art of juggling multiple roles. Acknowledging the challenges women face in managing various responsibilities, such as motherhood and a professional career, Irene encourages embracing imperfection and granting oneself grace. Her metaphorical depiction of juggling balls resonates deeply, reminding women that it’s natural for a few to drop occasionally; what matters is the determination to pick them up again.
Transitioning from a successful broadcast career to a media relations manager was a daunting leap for Irene. However, her courage to embrace change stemmed from a fundamental question: “What would I regret forever if I didn’t take this opportunity?” This introspective approach empowered her to step into the unknown and flourish in her new role.
