#YLAIEmpowers Women

When women lead, we all succeed.

#YLAIEmpowers Women is an initiative to raise awareness about challenges women face in becoming leaders in business and in their communities. Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring strategies and resources to help support women taking on leadership roles, discussing what both men and women can do to show their support, and sharing stories from individuals who have overcome some of these challenges.

Together, we hope to help create more leadership opportunities for women and to remove barriers to women and girls taking on leadership roles.

Remember: when women lead, we all succeed.
