Thankful for Women Empowering Women
There is so much to be thankful for! With Thanksgiving a couple of days away, I can’t help but reflect on all I am grateful for. I have the most amazing husband, family and friends and on top of it all I get to do what I love for a living.
My career has expanded beyond being a social entrepreneur and excitingly now includes a variety of speaking engagements and collaborations. The most recent of these being with Michele Watches. The Michele team reached out to me with the idea of collaborating kindly saying I was the perfect fit to host a “women empowering women” event for the brand. I immediately jumped at the opportunity! Michele is a brand entirely aligned with my values. The brand is dedicated to bringing women together to inspire and empower one another. That is something I also strongly believe in.
The event was at the beautiful Beekman Hotel in lower Manhattan. Delicious passed hor d’oeuvres and cocktails were served and an elaborate meat and cheese buffet was on display. Over 50 impressive girlbosses attended. I wore my new Michele Sidney watch which I am obsessed with (thank you Michele!) Attendees networked for over an hour and then I took the stage to talk all things women in the modern age.
Candidly, I think there is no better time in history to be a woman. I shared my thoughts on women encouraging and supporting one another, which I think is the key to all of us advancing and succeeding. I am incredibly proud to be a woman in this era and even more appreciative to have a network of women constantly encouraging, inspiring and mentoring one another. What do I think is the greatest thing about being a woman? Simply put: everything. We no longer need to think of ourselves as having less opportunity than men, we are a strong force and can conquer it all.
