Last year, Diane opened up to People magazine about owning who you are and your perfections. While discussing her InCharge with DVF podcast, she said, “I kind of started this whole movement called, ‘in charge.’ I always feel like people used to ask me, ‘What did you want to do when you were growing up?’ I always said, ‘Well, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be, and I wanted to be a woman in charge.’ So I always said that.”

Diane continued, “But the truth is that being in charge is first and foremost, a commitment to yourself. It’s owning who you are. If you own your imperfections, they become your assets. If you own your vulnerability, it becomes your strength. So, it’s about the relationship you have with yourself, and it’s about your character, and it’s about all of that. So, that’s what being in charge is about.”
