ISSUE #7 - March 27, 2019

Hello!

Lots of events to choose from for this week! Let me know which events you attended and what your experience was like (I’m super curious to know!).

I’m trying a new format to keep our Resources organized and easy for you to read. Give me a thumbs up if you like it or pass along a suggestion to improve it.

Please invite all the women of color in your life to join Amplify!

Happy reading!

Perspective

Women’s History Month is coming to a close and I want to express my gratitude. I’m grateful to be supported by and support so many women in all parts of my life. I’m grateful for being part of a rich history of women and for the chance and choice to create my own history as well. I’m grateful for everyone who takes time to read and respond to Amplify.

Amplify has been a true labor of love for me in the hopes that women can find resources that can help their careers and as a result their families and their communities. Recently a Black woman who is a professor at Chabot College in Hayward, CA said at a conference she founded for the College, “You have to create your own opportunities.”

Her statement resonated so strongly with me because I realized that Amplify and the work I’m doing through my business, AG Voiced, is about helping others create their own opportunities.

Let’s continue to collectively build upon the history of the women before us and forge ahead to leave a legacy of our own.

How are you creating your own opportunities? Tweet/DM me @audreygalo. Can’t wait to hear from you!
