March 8, 2023 is International Women's Day, an important day dedicated to celebrating the powerful impact that women make in our lives.
To celebrate this day and the many smart and hardworking women that have helped Field Effect become the company it is today, we wanted to know: What is the single greatest piece of advice you've received, in life or in work?
Their responses were so inspiring, we felt we should share. Here's some of what we heard.
HEAD OF STRATEGIC AND RESPONSE SERVICES
VP OF MARKETING
I grew up in Massachusetts in a very rural community. My mom was such an incredible role model. She is a career woman and impressed on me that while we love where we live, you need to experience the world. She told me:
That has been the most important advice I've ever received.
MARKETING OPERATIONS MANAGER
Greatest piece of advice ever received? It’s difficult to narrow it done to one soundbite, but one piece of advice that has carried me through a good portion of my career is this:
I was also shy, early in my career, and needed that push. But it’s true. You generally don’t win any prizes for weathering the storm, but you’ll be remembered if you helped build the ship.
SENIOR ACCOUNT LEAD
I can't remember where I heard this one, but it's definitely one of my favorites!
The best piece of advice was one I got from a mentor 20+ years ago. I have had two vastly different career paths and this advice has served me well in both.
SALES OPERATIONS LEAD
This is a great question. I think we all have received a lot of advice over the years, some of which we take with us and some of which we ignore. This is the one that has always stuck with me.
SENIOR SECURITY ANALYST
That’s a hard question, but this one has served me well the last couple of years.
SENIOR PEOPLE & TALENT MANAGER
My favorite piece of advice I received is also a Maya Angelou quote.
Continuously celebrating the many successes of women
International Women's Day is a reminder to recognize the many accomplishments of women around the world, but we can't forget to recognize their many accomplishments every other day of the year.
