Today’s spotlight: Mona Stone
Senior vice president, general counsel, chief compliance officer, and corporate secretary
Goodwill of Central Arizona
Stone has been in her current role at Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona since 2016. She has volunteered on several nonprofit boards, including the Arizona Association of Corporate Counsel and the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession. She graduated from Bradley University and earned her Juris Doctor from Tulane University Law School.
Lesson learned in 2020: “People are far more irrepressible and adaptable than they realize! As long as I provide regular, clear communication on how to restructure, remain focused, and prioritize their wellness and family, my team is able to accomplish new and amazing things despite difficulty or unfamiliarity. I will develop their innate creativity even more.”
Source of pride: “My current role at Goodwill is a true honor and privilege. I am able to provide both business and legal guidance to the business in support of our critical vision to end poverty through the power of work. I also am mentoring some incredible future leaders. Being able to help people transform their lives is extremely rewarding.”
Surprising fact: “I once drove an RV from Chicago to Oklahoma City for a wrongful death trial we were defending. Being only 5-1, this was quite a first for me. The jury was quite impressed with our ‘mobile command unit,’ which undoubtedly factored in to our ultimate victory.”
