We can’t hold the ‘thank you’ in any longer

As Women’s History Month comes to a close, our busiest month of the year, we want to take a moment to express our gratitude. A huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone that attended our keynotes, workshops and leadership development accelerators this month. Your participation, eagerness to learn and enthusiasm was truly amazing!

We also want to take a moment to thank our Women in Leadership honorees for taking the time to share their learnings. The thoughts and experiences you shared on imposter syndrome, how you #BreakTheBias in your careers, and what it takes to make a leader, were at times thoughtful, funny and emotional, but always inspiring.

Here’s a recap of the outstanding women in leadership that we feel honoured to know and were a joy to spotlight – give a click to read their interviews:

When comparing the profiles side-by-side, we noticed an interesting commonality that kept coming up with the question: who has been the most influential woman in your life/career? Over half of the respondents said it was their mother, and even more interesting were the words they used to describe them:

• strong;
• independent;
• relentless;
• integrity;
• tough cookie; and
• ambitious.

They have a lot in common with the verbiage one would use to describe leaders, and with attributes like these, it’s easy to see how one would be inspired to follow their example. So, our final thank you goes to all the amazing working moms out there, showing their children that meaningful careers and fulfilling family lives are possible for everyone.

The power of you as a working parent, inspiring your children just by being yourself and owning your worth, really cannot be overstated. Thank you for helping to inspire and empower the next generation of leaders.

Let’s keep the conversation going, reach out to us at team@desagloballeadership.com and let us know who has been the most influential woman in your life/career.
