My focus over the last year has been around equality, specifically as it relates to women. C Suite Design pushed me out of my comfort zone. We are approaching equality through suits – enabling a new generation of women who deserve better, giving them the tools and resources they need to make it to the executive office, and now, even the Oval office. Your wardrobe speaks to who you are and sets the stage for your day. A suit is a staple in most men’s closet, appropriate for every occasion and simple to accessorize. Women deserve the ease and convenience of a suit, not to mention the confidence of wearing something that so closely aligns with who you want to be.
I’ve spoken about pushing boundaries in your actions, your interactions and your perception. I’ve pushed myself through this active process of bringing awareness to my daily life of the areas that I’m uncomfortable and I feel like I’ve made great strides.
My world turned upside down the morning after the election. I never considered myself overly patriotic. I would go so far as to say that I was apathetic about politics, thinking nothing could be done. I woke to a situation that I had never imagined could happen. The people had spoken and yet the President elect was not whom the people had spoken for.
I couldn’t accept the fact that I voted and my vote was not heard; my vote was not equal.
I researched, I looked for ways to get involved. I protested. I created a website. I volunteered.
It’s time to get out of your comfort zone and stand together united-United for an equal voice, united for a fair chance, united against false pretenses.
