Articles Women’s Equality Day!

Today is Women’s Equality Day and wanted to invite you to PAUSE with me to acknowledge this special day.

Let us not forget how far we have come, and how far we still have left to go. We all have our own stories, and now is the time to share those stories of women doing remarkable things in our thriving business community.
