Today we will change tomorrow
Now more than ever, women and male allies, from around the globe are coming together to support causes related to women’s empowerment. With increased resources and opportunities available,women are making strides to have their voices heard, their work seen and their accomplishments praised. The United State of Women is a movement that not only believes in creating equal opportunities for women but openly discussing issues that need to be addressed. Their “6 Pillars” – Economic Empowerment, Health & Wellness, Educational Opportunity, Violence Against Women, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, and Leadership & Civic Engagement – outline topics that are shaping the movement. This powerful video describes the mission of the United State of Women perfectly.
As a women-centered business, this mission, passion, and motivation hit very close to home for us at Impact Consulting. We are a company that is changing the face, complexion and impact of business and community leadership. We leverage our integrated consulting and coaching model to provide roadmaps to success for women leaders. This is how we are contributing to the larger United State of Women movement.
As an alumni of the Goldman Sachs Tory Burch 10,000 Small Businesses program, I had the opportunity to attend the first annual United State of Women Summit on June 14-15 in Washington, D.C. To say these 2 jam-packed days of Solutions Seminars and amazing high-profile speakers including President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Meryl Streep were inspiring and motivating is quite the understatement. It truly showed me that all the work we do as individual moves us all forward.
During her time in the White House, Michelle Obama has used her platform to start these very important conversations, create groundbreaking movements and drive change. The United State of Women is a perfectly curated blend of priority topics that impact women around the world and reminds us all that “We stand stronger when we stand together.”
