Women are frequently enduring constant measures personally and professionally to feel empowered when confined to social policies and procedures of our environments and workplaces. Supporting and promoting women with equality and fairness historically has impacted women across the nation. As women continue to see a rise of changes with breaking glass ceilings, there are continued areas that we must address to value oneself, take risks, and discover how to develop the inherent strengths we all possess. To do this, we must connect with women interested in being inspired to be strong, smart, and bold.
