We can accomplish a lot on our own. We can tackle projects, command the boardroom, diffuse an argument and inspire passion into those around us. Although we can do a lot, we also need a lot. One of the things we need is a community of women. Whether the community is online, in person or both, we need it. Lots of good comes from a group of women who gather to encourage, equip and empower one another.
On that note, here are some of my favorite communities for women who work.
To me, Ivanka Trump is the epitome of class and the millennial career woman. Her brand, Ivanka Trump launched a new initiative, celebrating #WomenWhoWork. "The modern working woman looks fundamentally different from women in previous generations. For the first time in history, we're embracing the fact that our lives are multidimensional."
These Contessas are all about "honest conversations by real women about work and life - to help you achieve fulfillment and balance in both."
Sheryl Sandberg, a true trailblazer in the areas of women and work. She authored to famous, woman-empowering book, Lean In. "Circles are as unique but they all share a common bond: the power of peer support. Women are asking for more and stepping outside their comfort zones, and men and women are talking openly about gender issues for the first time."
Levo is your career copilot. At the beginning of your professional journey, "there are so many directions to choose from, there is little access to the learning and connections you need to be successful."
Grit and Virtue knows that we're better together. They are "running full speed ahead towards equipping entrepreneurial women to build amazing things."
The mission of the Rising Tide Society is "Educating and Empowering Creatives to Thrive in the spirit of Community over Competition."
