Hello Works for Women Community!
While it has been what feels like an eternity since we’ve written to you, we are beyond excited to be back. We’ve missed our community and our conversations around workplace challenges to spark dialogue, build awareness, and inspire individual action to drive change.
As March 1 is the start of Women’s History Month, and with International Women’s Day right around the corner, we felt it was the time to reignite our community. And what better way to reignite than through connection? Vulnerability expert Brené Brown once said "connection is why we're here. We are hardwired to connect with others, it's what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it there is suffering." We couldn’t agree more!
It has been a long two years, we all have felt the disconnection, so it is time to stretch that muscle. Building connecting and shared space to share who we are, and how we want to move forward is going to be key to our new post-pandemic world.
To join this Works for Women challenge, simply:
As Brené Brown shares in her most recent book, Atlas of the Heart, “so often, when we feel lost, adrift in our lives, our first instinct is to look out into the distance to find the nearest shore. But that shore, that solid ground, is within us. The anchor we are searching for is connection, and it is internal.” Simply put, connection is our challenge this month. Connection to ourselves, connection to our community, and connection to, hopefully, new communities as well.
We will look to bring another challenge to our community in the month of April and bring us back together to hear stories of leadership during the pandemic this fall.
