In March 2017, State Street Global Advisors, a nearly
$2.5 trillion investor, commissioned a bronze statue,
"Fearless Girl," to face off with one the most iconic
statues on Wall Street, the "Charging Bull."
The bold statement is necessary because women in America are underpaid compared to male
counterparts. A Congressional report shows that the average woman earns only 79% of what a
man earns. Further, according to Payscale.com, men are 85% more likely than women to be VPs
or C-Suite Execs by mid-career, and 171% more likely to hold those positions late in their career.
As women, we may not be in a position to
change the game but we can get better at
playing the game. Before my career as a coach,
trainer and speaker, I spent more than 20 years
working at a Fortune 500 company. I have
been in boardrooms where I was the only
woman. I have been passed over by others less
competent than myself. And I too at times have
wondered why not me. So I studied the game,
built relationships with the players and in every
professional interaction, I executed those plays
like it was only 20 seconds left on the clock
and I had 30 yards to goal. I learned to leverage
opportunities to break through barriers.

be learned and enhanced over time.

You will be successful
when you activate
your G.I.R.L. POWER!

The

G

stands for

GRIT.

Angela Duckworth explains grit as "a skill that
can help us to do anything we dream of. It's
the fine art of being able to find a solution
to any problem and show real courage when
attempting to fulfill a goal." She explains the
science behind why perseverance, courage, and
passion are far more important than talent.
Success is dependent on effort. Therefore, grit
will ALWAYS trump talent.

The

I

stands for

INSPI RATIO N.

It's a necessity to advance. You'll gain inspiration through knowledge. To advocate for
yourself for a promotion or raise - and for
lasting change - you must first figure out
where power resides in the organization.
What are the existing office norms for how
advancement decisions are made? Is there
a lot of transparency and structure to this
process, or none whatsoever? In other words
- know who's in charge and what behaviors
and relationships are necessary to get to your
