Have we ever mentioned that we love strong empowered women? It is sort of our favorite thing to discuss and show case. I mean we do have a whole You-tube channel sharing their stories.

As we get closer to International Women’s day, we thought that we could remind you of a few boss women that we know who are paving the way!

 Say her name loud and proud everyone. We are looking at someone who just made history recently by becoming the World Trade Organizations’s first African and female leader. Prior to that, Okonjo-Iweala spent 25 years with the World Bank, and two terms as a Nigerian Finance Minister. 

We love seeing a woman in power!

 Gonzalez is the founder of a non-profit in Guatemala called Eat Better Wa’ik. Its mission is to fight malnutrition through education and economics. In the last year, she was named a pandemic hero for providing healthy and nutritious baskets of food to urban communities.

 A true inspiration!

 Nenquimo founded the Ceibo Alliance to protect the land in Ecuador. Through her work, she has helped protect some 500,000 acres of the Amazonian rainforest and Waorani territory against oil extraction. She has also received a Goldman Prize and a “Champion of the Earth” honor from the U.N. Environmental Programme in December 2020.

A woman fighting for change!
