    On Friday, November 18, 2016 former Johnson
    Controls executive, community leader and mentor
    Mary J. Dowell (left), added a new title to her
    list – author. Dowell hosted a book launch event at
    Boswell Book Company, 2559 North Downer Ave.
    The event included a discussion and book signing.
    The book entitled, “Playing Through the Fence,”
    is part memoir, part self-help for emerging leaders
    or anyone seeking inspiration while facing obstacles
    in her career journey. Nineteen local Milwaukee
    women share powerful reflections of fortitude
    and accomplishments in their lives and careers,
    sometimes against what seemed like impossible
    odds, as they challenged barriers on their paths to success.
