NO ONE EVER SLOWS HER AGENDA
HerAgenda.com's mission is to universalize the motto of No one Ever Slows Her Agenda through our online initiatives. The site serves as an information and inspiration hub for millennial women.
Her Agenda provides inspiration through the stories of real women succeeding in their industries while also highlighting the information and resources needed to achieve that success. Resources include the latest in events, scholarships, conferences, internships and job opportunities for young women to reach their full potential.
The goal is to empower women to not allow anything to stop them from reaching their goals and aspirations while providing them with the resources to overcome their challenges. The professionals featured on HerAgenda.com have the power to break the mold and illustrate to young women across America that if they believe it they can achieve it. Each of them is the embodiment of the No one Ever Slows Her Agenda motto within their own industries.
The resources available to the members on the site can potentially put them in a position to better strategize and visualize life and career options.
Despite efforts to achieve equality, women still earn less money than men; they are over looked for promotions and are not likely to carry the title of CEO or President at major corporations. Among the Fortune 500 companies, only 23 have CEO's who are women, and before 1996 all the CEOs were men.
The presence of women in these positions continues to shock and awe, further solidifying women as the “other” when it comes to positions of power. There’s a cycle of normalcy and complacency that exists around these sensitive topics.
Utilizing mentorship, personal empowerment, and an increase in information, women can mobilize through empowering themselves to ultimately break down the patriarchal structures of society and claim their power.Site Sections & Features
