Accountable in Action.
It’s more than an organization. It’s a movement.
Welcome to It’s A Movement, a blog meant to entertain, provide insight, and question the status quo. It’s A Movement, or “I AM” for short, is inspired by our internal mantra, “It’s more than an organization. It’s a movement.” I AM is where you’ll see this organization’s purpose come to life.
We’ll feature relevant stories of women in business, professional development tips, book reviews, opinion pieces, profiles of AinA members reaching their goals, and the occasional editorial.
Being held accountable for our goals and actions is not limited to one race, one socio-economic class, one age group. It is the business of all women living in the 21st century. If you believe that women should be as free and able to succeed in the workplace as men, you need to be part of this.
I AM is part my voice, part stories we at Accountable in Action find particularly relevant. It is my hope that you will submit your own comments and story ideas. I can be reached, day or night (as I excessively check my email), at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to feature stories from everyone in the AinA community.
Last week, President Obama appointed his cabinet. All four of the appointees were men. But, let us pause. Just because Hillary Clinton is no longer the Secretary of State does not mean we should become discouraged. In fact, 43 percent of President Obama’s appointees have been women and two women were recently appointed to the Supreme Court.
Women are making great strides. This growth requires us to stand together and put our goals into action. Together, we will work to stop women from being an underrepresented group in the workplace.
A friend and a sister.
A force to be reckoned with.
Who are you?
A little [more] about me…
I am a fearless 20 something. A millennial over-achiever to the core. I am a feminist. I, along with the rest of the AinA team, am completely addicted to figuring exactly what needs to be done to change the world. I write. I read. I drink excessive amounts of coffee. I talk to people I don’t know to discover things I didn’t know I cared about.
But, most importantly, I am open to feedback and suggestions. This blog belongs to you, our readers and supporters. I just happen to be the one who edits it every week.
