There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women. – Kofi Annan
In the above quote, Secretary Annan was referring to women in developing nations. However, it’s just as apt a description of women in technology.
Encourage. Energize. Empower. Those are pretty tall orders. The YOU is implied. How about we imply instead that it’s WE? As working women with a voice, WE need to support each other. WE need to encourage each other to try harder, to reach farther and to stand taller. WE need to energize each other when we’re tired, when we stumble and when we need to rest.
Where should you start? How about right here? Here is a great place to start. We’ll do it together.
