Below is an email written for International Women’s Day by the co-founders of Union+Webster. We thought it was too sweet not to share on our blog! #loveourteam
Today, we’re taking a moment to honor International Women’s Day.
From the U+W team to our partners and clients, Cristol and I are honored to spend every day working with brilliant, bold, +minded women — women who direct, who design, who strategize, who help us grow, who make it all happen, and who are (frankly) the best dang goats around.
We hope you agree. After all, women do make up more than 60% of our agency.
Over the last five years here, there’s been growth and change — and lots of both. But one thing that’s remained constant is our commitment to nurturing +minded talent. That always means supporting +minded women. And more often than not (60% of the time, by one measure), it means hiring +minded women.
Take a look around — during our Monday round-up calls and Friday reflections, on Slack and in your meetings: So much of the best work in business is done by women. And together, we’re doing it in bold new ways, crossing boundaries, exploring new territory, and wearing many different hats along the way. That is special. Today, we’d like to recognize it.
Thank you for all you contribute to Union+Webster: your perspective, your passion, your creativity. It is a privilege to work with you, and we couldn’t be more excited about what we’ll build together next.
Gina + Cristol
P.S. As always, our “doors” are open for discussion — and today, for celebrating!
