Welcome to the Worldly Women Blog! I am Hannah Thomas, the Chief Officer of Women & Co.’s Global Awareness team and media and political science student. I am glad that you have visited our blog, but most importantly I am excited for you to read the thoughts and opinions of some of the most well-rounded women that I have met during my time at Indiana University. As one of the founding members of Women & Co., I carry such a tremendous pride for this group and our members! I am confident that each of these driven women will go on to create innovative products that will change the world, be CEOs of Fortune 500 Companies, politicians, influencers and advertising executives. In the past year alone we have expanded our membership from its start of 9 executive members to 44 members, developed a social media presence and discussed issues going on around the world that affect us daily. On the Worldly Women Blog, the Global Awareness team will be writing about our take on current events impacting socially conscious women leaders on a daily basis here at Indiana University and around the world. So please enjoy, we are very excited to share our talents with you. Enjoy!
“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”
I know it may seem like a lot now, but as you grow and learn and search for your own place in the world, I hope you’ll consider how to make your voice heard. Speak your mind in your classes, and at meetings once you have a job. Proudly take credit for your ideas. Have confidence in the value of your contributions. And if the space you’re in doesn’t have room for your voice, don’t be afraid to carve out a space of your own. Don’t be discouraged. Don’t give in. Don’t Give up. Don’t quit-on yourself, on your dreams, on your future. You can be anything you want to be.
