LEAP OF FAITH
24 AUGUST 2016
We did it! On Wednesday 3rd August, The LEAP Network launched! It was a culmination of months of strategy, consultation and walking the talk. It was refreshing, rewarding and humbling all at the same time. Establishing The LEAP Network was something I had thought about for years, I had written it down in one of my numerous notebooks over the years. It was exhilarating seeing my dream coming to life.
It wasn’t just a meeting of minds; it was a connection - a bond and the birth of a sisterhood. It felt great being honest with everyone, and genuinely not feeling any judgment. Every thought, every sentiment, every suggestion at that moment was valid. The focus was simply building one another as women.
As part of the launch we explored the need for women to LEAN IN, which is also the title and name of a movement initiated by Sheryl Sanderberg, COO of Facebook. Ladies, it’s our time to LEAN IN and stand out. We can’t sit in the sidelines hoping to grow, we need to take that LEAP and go forth. It isn’t easy, it may seem lonely, but thank goodness you don’t have to be alone. Pay close attention to what Sheryl has to say in this video
