Chief Marketing Officer
Right now, I am beyond inspired by Amanda Gorman. She is simply awesome. Her story, her words, her passion, and her optimism give me hope. She is an amazing woman.
New Product Development Manager
I love Simone Giertz - she's a Swedish maker/inventor known for building things that don't work. Her projects are rooted in robotics with a healthy dose of humor. I'm always inspired by her ability to wield different tools/materials to try things out!
Creative Content Associate
I grew up watching the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team absolutely dominate the field. Having incredible female athletes like Megan Rapinoe to look up to taught me that even as a young girl, I was strong and could achieve any goal I set my mind to. Getting to see her speak live at the MA Conference for Women was truly something I'll never forget.
Head of Digital Product
I went to a somewhat male-heavy university, and while I was there a new president came on. She was the first female president of MIT and I was lucky enough to spend some time helping to onboard her and work with her on student affairs. She is competent, calm, direct, empathetic, no-nonsense, kind, inquisitive, and smart--she is the kind of leader I aspire to be, and it was cool to learn from her.
I'm truly inspired by all the female entrepreneurs in my life. From my mom, to my sister-in-law, to local creators in my city who have become great friends! Since a young age I have been surrounded by strong female entrepreneurs, and I believe it greatly impacted my view of women in the workplace and showed me I can do anything I set my mind to.
Systems Operations Associate
Not only do I love her cookbooks and watching her show, but I also admire Ina Garten's passion to follow what she loves. She decided to leave her job in the White House and start her own business from the ground up. She taught me that you should follow your true passion, and if you love your job you don't have to "work" a day in your life.
Designer for Retail/Wholesale
Rose Wong, a local trans-rights activist who recently passed away, continues to be a source of inspiration for my partner and me. Though I sadly didn't get to meet her in person, I admire her work in campaigning for transwoman-inclusive policies in women's colleges. She's truly touched so many lives in the community.
Director of Public Relations and Brand Communications
My first boss is, to this day, the sharpest, strongest, and most confident person I've had the pleasure of knowing. She believed in me--wide-eyed and fresh out of college--and taught me to never doubt the fact that I have earned a seat in every room. She is the true definition of a boss and an amazing woman.
Designer Level 2
I'm super inspired by my best friend Sydney. We studied design together and (without her even knowing it) she's always challenging me to look at things from a different angle, explore more, and see every situation as an opportunity to have fun! She truly leads by example and I am #blessed to have her in my life.
Senior Graphic Designer
Malala Yousafzai advocates for girl's and women's education despite death threats and assassination attempts. She was shot at the age of 15 for her beliefs, survived, and continued doing what she was doing. She fights for a better future for people she doesn't even know.
Business Development Manager
Sports have always been a huge part of my identity and Sage Steele was a pioneer in pushing boundaries in sports broadcasting which is a predominantly male industry. She empowered me to believe that my gender doesn't put me in a box. As an added bonus, she's also a Hoosier and it all came full circle when she was my commencement speaker when I graduated from Indiana University. Go Hoosiers!
People Operations Business Partner
The photo of Kathrine Switzer running a marathon and being pushed/pulled by men trying to get her off the course is always such a moving photo for me--she was so calm and didn't even seem fazed. As the first woman to run the Boston Marathon (with an official race number), she opened the doors for women in sports. As a lifelong athlete, I am so appreciative of Kathrine and of all trail-blazers who stand up and make moves for equality.
