One of my New Year’s resolutions is to continue to look for ways to support the women in my life. I feel so privileged to have worked with and for so many incredible women, and I want to do my part to pay that support forward. To get inspired, I gathered articles and videos highlighting women who have made a big dent in the world in 2015. I’m inspired by many of these women and whether I agree or not with their perspectives, I applaud their courage and tenacity. Can’t wait to see more woman making an impact in 2016!
