In Celebration of International Women’s Day!

Women are naturally and uniquely poised to help other women throughout life. We pass on generational wisdom on everything from how to use menstrual hygiene products, breastfeeding and menopause hacks, to establishing boundaries, overcoming adversity and healing a broken heart. So why don’t we do more of this in the workplace?

Being our best allies, champions, cheerleaders, confidantes, and friends will propel us to a new era of making place for each other at the business table. I’ve been blessed to witness this happening and I wanted our special International Women’s Day edition to reflect this theme: women championing women.

A good friend of mine, Louise Mercier, once highlighted that I had a superpower: an ability to surround myself with amazing humans. The following are but a small sample of the incredibly strong, inspirational, and empowered women with whom I get to connect.

Long live strong women!

(And aren’t we all?)
