Did you know women make up half of the global population but are often underrepresented in leadership roles, political positions, and STEM fields? According to a report by the World Economic Forum, we hold only 26% of tech jobs, 22% of senior management positions, and just 7% of Fortune 500 CEO roles.
Yesterday at Neiman Marcus Chicago, I had the opportunity to hear a panel from
successful women entrepreneurs and leaders in the city of Chicago: Yasmin Curtis Founder and CEO of Two Fish Foods (Two Fish Crab a must when in Chicago) , Izabel Olson Founder/CEO of the Salt & Light Coalition and proud Latina 🇧🇷, Kathryn Janicek 3x Emmy Winner and super powerful executive coach. hosted and moderated by Audrina Bigos, CBS, News Anchor and advocate for women empowerment (truly an inspiration).
Here are five key takeaways from the panel discussion:
1. Know who you are - and if you don't know... go find out! You are worthy, you are powerful, you are loved, you can do great things. Knowing our strengths, weaknesses, values, and beliefs can help us make better decisions, set meaningful goals, and find our bigger purpose.
2. Know your why - Knowing why we're doing what we're doing will help us stay motivated and focused on the reasons behind the why (the "why's" of all these women are about changing lives 🤍)
3. Stay close to God - Recognizing that there are many things we can not control and we "Let go and Let God"
4. Watch your environment - Staying aware of the conversations, the people, the places and things we are filling ourselves into.
5. Take care of yourself - Investing in our physical and emotional well-being is part of valuing and honoring who we are!

More women are breaking through barriers and achieving success in traditionally male-dominated fields. We are now CEOs (from homes to major companies), astronauts, Nobel Prize winners, Creators, and heads of state. But most importantly, we are recognizing that our voices are being heard and lauder than ever before!
