International Women’s Day

In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, some of the leaders at performance marketing agency Journey Further offered some inspirational and insightful comments:

What does International Women’s Day mean to you?

“Listen to those with quieter voices. Create a safe space for those who are less vocal, and check in regularly with them. Ensure meetings have a clear agenda and a chair person who can ensure every voice is heard, and that people can prep in advance so they feel prepared and confident. Remembering that no idea is a bad idea, and welcome ideas from all levels”, Beth Nunnington, VP, Organic Media, Journey Further

“International Women’s Day highlights the achievements of women across the globe. It’s a day where we pause to celebrate the brilliance of women as we’re reminded that women’s contributions, though often forgotten, have shaped our world.” Caitlin Halpert, VP, Growth, Journey Further

“It’s a day to both reflect on the progress women have made in the workplace and raise awareness around the challenges we still face and continue to advocate for change.” Michelle Argan, VP, Paid Media, Journey Further

“By celebrating differences and supporting growth, ideas, and innovation, no matter the source we can all create a more inclusive environment, both at work and in society.” Caitlin Halpert, VP, Growth, Journey Further

“Mentoring is the one of the best ways to support and give back. Listening, sharing experience and providing advice.” Michelle Argan, VP, Paid Media, Journey Further

“International Women’s Day is about celebrating women from all over the world, to inspire, educate and drive positive change.”, Beth Nunnington, VP, Organic Media, Journey Further

This year’s theme is #InspireInclusion. How do you invest in helping other women feel and be included?

“Surround yourself with strong, brilliant women. Work in a culture where women are valued. And, no matter the level of experience or title – cultivate balanced relationships – up, down, and across the spectrum. Mentor and support one another as you and they achieve success even if their success may block yours momentarily. Eliminate the evils of competitiveness, jealousy, and pettiness. Make it your duty to help other women. As Madeleine Albright said, “There is a place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” – Linda Warnock, SVP, Global Head of Marketing, Journey Further

What career advice do you have for aspiring women looking to make big impacts in their careers?

“Women can make a big impact with their career by doing three things: 1. Focus on what matters – whether it’s personal or business objectives. 2. Challenge the status quo – a growth mindset will ensure you’re growing and adapting to ongoing change. 3. Be fearless – impact requires making bold, and sometimes tough choices whether it’s quitting a job or providing feedback to a peer. You can do what’s right and be caring and empathetic at the same time.” Caitlin Halpert, VP, Growth, Journey Further

“Apply for the job even if you don’t think you are 100% qualified. You likely are.” Michelle Argan, VP, Paid Media, Journey Further
