We're shut down to STAND UP FOR WOMEN
Your International Women’s Day to-do list
Pay gap? Pay it forward. From the women at Benefit to the women of the world…here’s a list of things you can do right now to smash the patriarchy.
Do more than double-tap
Show some IWD love on social, then back it up with action IRL. Volunteer or donate to charities that support women and girls in your community. You’ll empower others…and yourself! When you do good, you feel good.
Raise your voice
Advocate for yourself and others. If you’re in a position of power or privilege, you can do the most for the under-represented in your office. A good rule of thumb: ask, listen, show up and speak up.
Pretty up that resume
Whether you’re employed or on the job hunt, take a minute to freshen things up! You want to be resume-ready when the recruiter rings with your dream gig. Encourage a bestie to do the same and swap feedback.
Network like you mean it
Join or build a network full of inspiring, badass women. Set up coffee (or cocktail) dates with colleagues, as well as #bossbabes in other industries, too. Hold each other accountable for makin’ the good stuff happen.
Take a power stance
Superheroes don’t mess around and their bold posture says it all. Practice confident body language to nix the jitters before you walk into a job interview, big presentation, or negotiations with HR. When your body radiates confidence, your mind will follow suit. Sidenote: a pink power suit is also never a bad idea.
Get what’s yours
OMG they offered you the job (of course they did!). Time to negotiate! Advocate for your needs and brush up on your get-what-you-deserve skills so you can sign on the dotted line with confidence.
Beat imposter syndrome
You have it, she has it, we have it…and it’s bogus. You slay! You’ve made it this far for a reason, so take ownership.
Build your case for that raise
Getting a raise/promotion often requires asking for one…gulp! You deserve it, so walk into your boss’ office ready to get it.
Put it in the bank
School yourself in finance or meet with an advisor. Also, talk to your crew. The topic of money doesn’t have be taboo.
Don’t take a step…take a leap
Have a degree in business but now you’d rather be peering through a microscope…or fixing up motorcycles or producing podcasts? Do it! Like, right now. Tune in to your intuition and quit draggin’ those sweet feet. Listen to this podcast to hear how women came into their “second life.”
