U.S. Small Business Administration Recognizes Doreen Wade, Publisher and CEO of New England Informer dba N.E. Informer Newsmagazine as "Massachusetts Small Business Person of the Year"

MEDFORD, Mass., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Black History Month brings recognition to so many people but it often forgets to look at our everyday citizens who work tirelessly and silently in their communities to make a change. Well in the small suburbs of Boston is a woman making history in her own right. In recognition of small businesspersons, who perform extraordinary deeds daily for their communities and their business world, Doreen Wade has received nomination by the Small Business Administration. Doreen has lead N.E. Informer Newsmagazine to develop partnerships with renown specialists throughout the United States, delivering news and information to uplift, educate and inform citizens of the community.

Doreen Wade, a driving force, works tirelessly in raising the public's awareness on missing children and adults. She sits on various boards, around the country. For example, she serves on a California board that raises awareness on the use of the "N" word through United Voices of Color Community. Doreen has spent many years as a surrogate single parent to her niece, Lisa and nephew, Ralph Wade. This event caused her to get involved, right out of college, working to help youths in Cambridge, Massachusetts, her hometown as a mentor and advocate in collaboration with the Cambridge School System and Police Department.

"Being an advocate, for the youth, was a great opportunity which guided me to where I am today. These youth helped me understand the importance of knowledge," Doreen said. "I've watched children in many communities, including my own in Cambridge, build confidence and grow through sharing the news and information they needed to find scholarships, write resumes and more information not many people take the time to relay.  Doing this business helps me teach so many no matter where they come from or what they need, the resources are there to give them."

Doreen Wade has a strong commitment to uplift, educate and inform around the nation through its N.E. Informer Newsmagazine which supports organizations, foundations and businesses that help others improve their lives through education, literacy, help and more.

"It may sound simple, but it hasn't been for me," Doreen maintains. "It has been a struggle being a black woman with this type of business. Everyone wants to know if you make money; that's what they base working with you on. Small business is not looked on as a good risk. If they can't make money from you they don't care about your cause. This also goes for churches, government agencies, businesses in your community and people who preach to assist until you knock on their doors."

This spring, Doreen's nomination will either be a winning situation or a loss but, as Doreen said, just being given the honor of being nominated and knowledge of knowing her work has value is a win for her and her company.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
