Happy International Women's Day. These individuals represent so much to me. A soon to be physician and unwavering ally. A wellness coordinator who supports me endlessly. An amazingly talented producer who goes above and beyond. A marketing coordinator who shares my love of fitness. A compassionate teacher spreading knowledge and a message of inclusion. And last but not least, the amazing photographer that took this picture, who hikes mountains, loves dogs and is all around fabulous. These individuals are bold.
We need to #beboldforchange . Why? Well, because today someone voiced the opinion that it's unfair that "women get a day." Because last week a colleague told me,"You shouldn't lift weights because you'll get manly." Because our LGBTQ friends still face marginalization. Because the World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186. We need to be bold so that our daughters (& sons) grow up in a culture that supports their ambitions, challenges bias and calls for gender balanced leadership. There is urgent work to do. ✨✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿✨
