We launched this video page for women who prefer to speak their story rather than write it. Some of these videos were recorded at international conferences we were fortunate to attend. We invite you to share one of YOUR stories of overcoming the fears, beliefs, or circumstances that once held you back in any way. We know that your story can encourage and inspire many other women & girls.
We are very grateful to Elisa Gambino of One Productions for her excellent advice and tireless support, and we admire her commitment to the empowerment of women & girls in her personal and professional life. We also extend many thanks to Scott Hayes of Altera Web and to Michele Bires of Sefcik Productions for their work in first bringing this video page to life.
