Since it’s Women’s History Month (hurrah), I thought it was only natural to speak on how powerful it can be to encourage and empower our sisters. An empowered woman can be powerful, and when she’s surround by other empowered women – well, they can conquer the world. Who run the world? But in the world we live in, sometimes cheering on your fellow female can be difficult. We can let greed, envy, and jealousy get the best of us, and it’s easy to think that by cheering another woman on that it’ll somehow diminish our own sparkle. Over the years I’ve learned that this is not the case.
We need to celebrate each other more because in doing so we are showing the world that we are a community that runs deep and an unstoppable force that will make change. So today I encourage you to put down the shade and replace it with praise and tell a fellow warrior that she is a phenomenal light in this world. Because she is and so are you. I think there’s enough room at the top for all of us. With that, here are a few ways we as women can empower our sisters.
1// Shop and support from women-owned businesses. Seek women-owned businesses and shop or user their services. Take it one step further and leave a positive review and recommend their business to others.
2// Join a woman-led networking group in your vocation. Trust me when I say you can find any type of group on LinkedIn. Do you’re research and join a woman-led networking group, partake in discussions, and help each other out.
3// Cheer on the women in your life. Whether it’s your friend starting her own blog or a female family member hitting a major milestone – show them you support their goals and encourage them along their journey.
4// Encourage and support the ideas of women in your work circle. If your female co-worker proposes an idea that is valid and you agree with, don’t be a wildflower, show that you like the idea. Men do it all the time so why can’t we. Again, validating her ideas don’t diminish yours.
5// Mentor a young woman. Whether it’s a big sister program or a vocational mentor program, share your skills with young women. Show them that it’s possible to be successful in the field of their choosing.
6// Donate to local, women-led causes and charities. Is there a local women’s shelter or a women-led charity that sparks your interest – put your money where your mouth is and donate, whether that’s your time or your money.
