I find inspiration from my colleagues, both present and former, who
refuse to accept the status quo and consistently ask, ‘What else can I

“There are countless hardworking women waking up each morning, setting
out to do their jobs and just get through the day. While so many women
may not realize it, it is likely they are inspiring to someone around

have to be a state senator or a neurologist to be an inspiration to
others, and we are committed to paying tribute to the everyday heroes
among us.”

The 100 Inspiring Women feature is an extension of the company’s Experts
Among Us
program, a 21,000-member strong program that includes a
diverse mix of celebrities, bloggers, social media influencers,
activists and everyday hand-raisers. Read about the women who made the 100
