It was James Brown who sang, “This is a Man’s World.” In this day and time, one has to question whether this statement is true. Women have changed the way company’s market, sell, educate, train, communicate, collaborate, and innovate. Women have outpaced men earning college degrees, equaled their numbers in the workplace and have snatched the family purse to make 85% of consumer purchases. Women have made strides in the business world as trailblazing entrepreneurs and inroads in corporate America climbing the ladder to success.
For that reason, we dedicated this feature to Women who are on the RYSE! To all of the strong, confident women who strive to have it all: The career, the family, and the financial freedom, yet still have time to give back and make a significant contribution to the communities in which they live.
Because, while the first part of the chorus for James Brown’s hit song is certainly questionable today, there is one part that is an undeniable fact, “It wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl.”
