Women’s History Month 2023

Where would we be without women? BUILD is thrilled to celebrate and pay homage to the dynamic, intelligent, and ambitious women in our community and the world over. Stand with us as we support the next generation of entrepreneurs and change makers!

The battle for women’s rights and equity is an evolving conversation. Thanks to the courage, ambition, and talent of women that would not take “no” for an answer, glass ceilings and molds are breaking the world over. This International Women’s Day, we recognize the female leadership at BUILD that keeps us moving towards a world of equity and opportunity.

The state of the world is ever-changing. As women across the globe are finding their seats at the table, it’s crucial to teach the next generation of women that leadership is in their grasp, if they just reach for it. Meet Kim Vinh, BUILD’s newly appointed Senior Learning Experience Designer, talk to the importance of the agency of change. Let’s get inspired!

Often, women create their own businesses to showcase their passions and ideals, just as this entrepreneur has done.  Meet Kelly,
a client for BUILD’s 2022 Design Challenge. She runs multiple businesses with the goal of uplifting her community. Cheers to Kelly for being a shining example of empowerment and advocacy. Keep reaching for the stars!

We salute the incredible women, who risked it all for change. Those who had the courage to become rulers, activists, politicians, executives, etc. Those who gave little girls something to strive for. Those who knew that getting the job done often means kicking down doors and barriers. In honor of Women’s History Month, here are a few quotes from the multi-talented women of the BUILD community.
