02: Celebrating International Women’s Day
In a show about women mentoring women, it is important to pay tribute to the women who came before us and paved the way to equality. The fight for equal representation in our workplaces and in our society still continues, but I am inspired by the words of Florence Nightingale, “I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took any excuse.” Today, let’s take a leaf out of Florence’s book and stop making excuses and start being the leaders we want to see change the world.
“If you want to see more women in leadership, be in leadership.” – Elisa Hays
March 8th is International Women’s Day, and the theme for 2018 is “Press for Progress.” I want to take a look together about how you can I can embody the press for progress together. What will it take to see women in corporate leadership roles? What about diversity within those women in leadership? Changes are happening, but they will only stick if we show up! I am excited to continue the conversation with you today in this episode!

A leader—whether in the family, or the church, or the government—which bases his actions, decisions and leadership on the Word of God, and progresses day by day, learning by thinking, learning by studying, learning by doing; will progress, and will develop wisdom and rapport with God the Father and with the Son. The key to godly leadership is to put God first.
