Many of the women in my circle are doing incredible things both in the workplace, with their businesses and through advocacy within the industry.
How I show support?
- Show up and promote their speaking engagements, events and new business ideas.
- Share their accomplishments via social media, email & word of mouth.
- Invest monetarily in their ideas & products.
- Provide advice if solicited & respect the privacy of "safe spaces" when new ideas or next moves are spoken about.
- Refer them when I am told of opportunities.
- Keep their secrets.
