HIRE Strategies CEO Sonya Hopson

Sonya Hopson is “The Lady with The Pink Hard Hat”, but she’s so much more than that. She’s an African American woman working primarily in the construction industry, and she’s overcome so many challenges – bias, mistakes, imposter syndrome, racism, and her own personal struggles – to build HIRE Strategies into one of the preeminent job recruitment firms in North Carolina.
