“It’s not only about raising ourselves, but also raising other women, because when we rise together, we rise so much higher!”

– Eliza VanCort, Author and Motivational Speaker, Eliza VanCort.

International Women's Day has been celebrated for over a century, with the first gathering held in 1911. Since then, women have proven their worth in virtually every field, from politics to business to academia. Today’s women are striving to uplift other women, are brands in themselves, and are breaking barriers in their personal and professional lives. This year’s International Women’s Day campaign theme #BreakTheBias promotes and glorifies this change.

On this International Women's Day, we have compiled inspiring quotes from women leaders we've had the pleasure of communicating with. Take a minute to celebrate their achievements and contributions to their industry.

Foster Connections and Build Trust

“When we create a positive experience that fosters connection and builds trust, we increase the probability of a future business transaction.”

– Carrie Missele, Director, Inspirant Group.

Gain Knowledge from Peers

“Professionals (especially young professionals) gain a vast majority of their knowledge from their peers - watching, listening, asking questions, and building relationships with others.”

– Amber Vanderburg, Founder, The Pathways Group.

Boldly Communicate Value

“Communicating value is especially important for an agency because agencies are in the ideas business. Ideas are abstract and abstract things are difficult to value.”

– Jody Sutter, Founder, The Sutter Company.

Analyze to Stay Competitive

“The most essential way to stay competitive is to continuously analyze for product-market fit.”

– Julia Markish, Director, Advisory Services at Lattice

This integration will enable them to consolidate platforms for the company’s agents, reduce the number of vendor relationships for Terrazas’ team to manage, and streamline agent workflows for added speed and efficiency. “We are thrilled to work with MMC on their cloud transformation—leveraging the strengths of our unified communications platform,” said Carson Hostetter, chief revenue officer at RingCentral. “By shifting to RingCentral, MMC is driving greater operational efficiencies and improvements in both customer and employee experiences.” About MMC California-based Human Resources Outsourcing company MMC was established over 40 years ago for the purpose of providing HR Outsourcing & Consulting solutions to improve business performance.
