At VOX, we have plenty of strong women (more than 60% of our staff!) who exemplify the ideals of #PressForProgress. Also, from our work with AT&T on STEM education for girls, to Lumina’s focus on closing the educational equity gap for women of color, to our work with several organizations led by women CEOs, we’ve been fortunate to partner with a variety of organizations actively supporting the advancement of women and girls.
Today, we encourage you to reflect on the progress made and the progress yet to achieve, and also to contribute your own thoughts to the larger on and off-line dialogue around #PressForProgress. You might consider how female role models have had an impact on your life, or what messages you have for young women today, or how men can also use their voices to press for progress. There’s still work to be done, and today I’m raising my voice in gratitude for the talented group of women I have the honor of calling my colleagues, clients and mentors.Continue reading >
