Women Supporting Women: A Smart Thing

I recently read a powerful quote written by Hillary Clinton in, Women in the World Today which is a publication of global women’s issues.  She says,

“At the State Department, we believe elevating the status of women and girls in their societies is not only the right thing to do, it is also the smart thing to do. Women and girls are often a community’s greatest untapped resource, which makes investing in them a powerful and effective way to promote international development and our diplomatic agenda.”

Secretary of State

We strongly believe this statement also applies at the local and national level.  Lynne and I are committed to the importance of women supporting women to be our community’s tapped resource.  We are curious to know what other women think and want to invite you to participate in a conversation on this topic.  Join us September 18 for the Goddess Collective in the Artworks Building at 6:00 pm.

    I have often been in a position where I was supported by women. Early in my career I worked in dental offices, which were typically all women as staff. Each experience, as I remember, was one of total support. And as I think about it a dental office is really designed to work this way – in order to do the work, we have to depend on each other. We became friends and were there for each other professionally and personally. I have heard women say, “Well, you know what its like to work with all women. The pettiness, Cattiness,…..” That wasn’t my experience at all – It was growth, support and fun. You have me thinking, Bea, about what support did look like… Thank you!
