Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
Never has that been more evident than over the last couple of weeks. I’ve had the privilege to work alongside a group of dedicated men and women who have been working tirelessly to restore power in an area hard hit by Hurricane Michael. This electric system was left without a single meter turning and over 2,000 poles broken after the storm left a path of destruction in this South Georgia town. Many of the people working tirelessly to restore power to their friends and neighbors have not stopped to deal with their own personal tragedies. Some have lost homes. Many have suffered damage to their own property.
I’ve seen real life heroes wearing white hats arrive to help speed the process; miles of bucket trucks and numerous lineman who have left their families to come lend a helping hand.

I believe it’s vital for women to pay it forward and be supportive of each other and the work (both professional and personally) each other does. We need to share what we learn along the path and not hold it tight. We need to light the path for those younger women beginning their climb, so their voices and ideas can shine. Remember, we don’t have to be perfect at what we do. We just have to be perfectly us doing it.
