Earlier this month, at a Women Who Empower event in India, CEO of Vu Technologies Devita Saraf put it this way: “I’m the boss. If I’m not going to be bossy, who will?” These powerful words addressed society’s tendency to put female confidence in a negative light.⁣⁣ 📺⁣

Think of a time when your “bossiness” was viewed negatively and what you did to combat that.⁣⁣ 💪🙌✨⁣

A few years ago, a decision was made to change the title of our initiative from “Women Who Inspire” to “Women Who Empower.” Diane MacGillivray, senior vice president for University Advancement—and our fearless leader—said, “‘Inspire’ is passive, but ‘empower’ is active.” ⁣🤩👏🙌🌟💫

Let’s channel her energy during this unsettling time: Empower yourself by checking out our new content—articles, podcasts, webinars, and more—on our revamped Women Who Empower website. We hope you find the experience empowering! ⁣

Susan Shah, SL’02 is an exceptional advocate for people of all backgrounds—from supporting youth who create public art to advance social change and providing legal assistance to unaccompanied immigrant children who are facing deportation and replenishing and restoring environments for once incarcerated adults to building accountability systems to ensure agencies are serving their communities in the best way possible, she’s an unstoppable force. ⁣

We're looking back 👀💃 on Nancy Pelosi's visit to our Boston campus yesterday. This #iconic woman dropped some real knowledge on us: ⁣

"Don't agonize, organize." ⁣

"Let me introduce you to the marble ceiling." ⁣

"We have to have that diversity at the table. The beauty is in the mix."⁣

The list of inspirational quotes goes on and on. And this is JUST from yesterday's event. We couldn't be more grateful to Nancy for starting our weeks off right. ⁣

Mary Ciampa, DMSB’92, is working to invest in women. To that end, she created WomenX, an online learning community focused on education, support, and empowerment for females. ⁣

As this community grows, Mary seeks to continue using education to help empower women and advance society at the same time—in turn, laying the groundwork for a world where every person is treated equally and given equal opportunity, respect, treatment, care, and pay. And we are #hereforit!⁣

Sip & Script started as an idea between two friends and Boston-based calligraphers: Meg Chaloner and Julie Mancini thought hosting calligraphy and hand-lettering classes would be fun. 👯‍♀️ Their first-ever class sold out in 2015 and the rest is history. Now classes are being held all over the United States, their team continues to grow, and the community of creatives they’ve built thrives. ⁣✒️✍️🎨🖌⁣

Today—#NationalHandwritingDay—we celebrate the @sipandscript craft, the #trailblazing #ladygang (or #squad as they like to say!) that runs the company,  and their ever-growing network of makers, crafters, and innovators. ⁣⁣

Today, and everyday, we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and what he fought for. In addition to "I have a dream," this incredible soul coined the phrase “The time is always right to do what is right.” This quote led him through life—let it #inspire and #empower you today: to be kind, to stand up for what you believe in, and to be true to yourself. ⁣⁣
