On Monday a colleague of mine asked our team the question, what does International Women’s Day mean to you?

I heard so many thoughtful responses including honouring the women before us and acknowledging the work that still needs to be done, educating the future generation and raising children with an awareness around gender inequity as well as many stories and celebrations of the women who have made an impact in our lives.

March 8th and everyday, I strive to support people in my community to step into their power, worth and build the confidence to let go of their doubts and move towards the career and life they will achieve!

I believe that holding hands together in support and encouragement is how we’ll ALL get there.So with all that being said, have you been thinking of ways you can support women in your community? Well think and look no further, I’ve got you; here are three actions you can take today at work. ps real quick. Before you start thinking, but I’m not in a leadership or manager position, let me tell you, you don’t need to be in a position of leadership to do any of this. Just be you, the leader that you choose to show up as each day!

Ok here we go 👇👇🏼👇🏾👇🏿


1️⃣ ENCOURAGE

Are the same voices always being heard in meetings?Take a moment to check-in with some of the quieter voices and get curious what’s stopping them from sharing. Maybe there’s a different format or way they can contribute to the conversation beyond the meeting.

2️⃣ CELEBRATE

Acknowledge the good work women in your organization are achieving.Send an email, make a phone call, ask them to jump into a meeting 3 minutes before it begins and share specifically what you’re noticing, what you’re learning from them or a specific job well done on a recent accomplishment.

3️⃣ MENTOR

Don’t be shy; you’ve got lots to contribute! Send out an invite to host a power hour mentor session and encourage fellow team members from the organization to join. Answer questions about your career journey, your career path and share habits that have supported you with your success.

If you end up actioning any of the above, I’d love to hear about it! Send me an email at hello@owntheinterview.ca, comment below or send me a DM @owntheinterview
