Who We Are So Far: An Update on The Expansive Woman Project Membership
Curious about your expansive sisters? You’ll be happy to know, they’re a very impressive and international group!
Well, it’s been two months since we launched The Expansive Woman Project and we’re off to a good start.
At this writing, there are about 130 of us. We hail from the USA, Canada, England, France, UAE and Australia. We are diverse in age, ethnicity and profession.
And, we are here for the right reasons. Here's a few quotes:
“Being part of a community of women who also want to speak up and shine is something I’ve been looking for for a long time. I sometimes find myself intimidated but have great ideas I’m shy to share. Hopefully, I can connect with other women who have overcome this situation and/or share experiences.”
“This a fantastic opportunity to connect with fabulous women around us who are excelling in their own lives while inspiring others!”
“I have found myself playing too small lately. I am tired of it! I want to have the courage to expand in a way that I have never expanded before.”
“I want to network with strong women to learn how they have broken through the barriers.”
“Earlier in my career, I was firing on all cylinders... After a major accident removed me from work for a bit, I found myself changed. I'm figuring out the "new me" and how to get all fired up again :) I have so much more to accomplish!”
“A desire to act like I’m not afraid, speak up more often and more intelligently, grow and nurture future leaders while asking for mentorship for myself.”
“There's power in community! I'm looking forward to hearing from, connecting with and being inspired by other women.”
“Excited to be inspired by the stories and successes of women in today’s fast-paced and changing world and to be part of a network that honours and celebrates women’s day to day lives and achievements.”
Honestly, I tear up when I read these. I’m so thrilled that we are building this together!
My goal is to get us to 500 members by the end of January (and to 10,000 by the end of 2021!). The more of us there are, the more we can do. I would love to create sub-groups by interest or profession, do some kind of mentorship program, and launch an introduction program where we can meet each other on a 1:1 basis. (BTW, your ideas about what else we can do are very, very welcome.)
But to do all these great things, I need your help!
My data shows that when a member recommends the Expansive Woman Project to woman she knows, they are very likely to sign up.
So, if you haven’t done so already, please reach out to other amazing women in your network and invite them to join the project. Post about us on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TicTok, etc.
There’s strength in numbers. So let’s build our strength - together!
