The newness of 2018 is starting to fade, but the momentum of disruptions that began in 2017 remain, and they’re becoming even stronger. Amidst the uprisings, two emotions have begun to crystalize in our world: The feelings of power and being proud.
Not a day goes by that our team hasn’t felt a burst of pride for the voices of the women surrounding us–our coworkers, members and partners at The Riveter, the women speaking up in the media (Oprah is a real MVP), our friends, our acquaintances. We’re proud of the brave women coming forward to share their stories, of the women and men around the world standing in solidarity to say Time’s Up. Proud to be part of a company that will truly make a difference in the world around us. And while we’re proud of what’s happened thus far, we are also excited.
We’re in the middle of building something powerful. And we feel that. Everything The Riveter does is designed to help women in business succeed. To invite ambition. Within our membership and without, we’ve banded togetheras a community. We have power in numbers. And together, we have power in our voices. With that, we will TRULY implement change for women in the workplace and for women around the world.
So here’s to sticking up for ourselves and the women around us. Here’s to never letting someone else believe they’re more powerful than our own self. Here’s to creating our world, the equal world.
Here’s to no more silence.
