“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.

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.”

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