Be Bold for Change: International Women’s Day 2017

Today is International Women’s Day. Every March 8th we take a day to celebrate women and diversity; we celebrate mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, and especially, the future.   

There is much more work to be done. It’s disheartening to see that, even today, gender differences still exist. I feel strongly that anyone should be able to work in an environment that is inclusive. This belief is one of the reasons I created Veracity Consulting. Our culture celebrates differences and encourages people––our people––to be themselves.

At Veracity, we know diversity is the key to our success––in business and in our world. We make inclusivity a priority and, as a business owner, I know firsthand how diversity is a reflection of our community. I am proud to have many strong women working at Veracity! Our female engineers and businesswomen thrive and have an impact in STEM areas. 

Diversity in ideas and perspectives encourages better decision-making, produces more meaningful products, and creates a more interesting and proactive culture at Veracity. We believe that by creating the right environments, programs, and policies, women in technology are better positioned to drive transformational change in the industry and beyond.  

Be Bold For Change,
