I remember the exact moment I realized the amazing power of women; that together, women can accomplish anything they put their minds to.
I grew up in a household of women. I had no brothers to compete with, and my parents always encouraged us to learn and develop leadership skills. However, even growing up in an encouraging environment, I still developed an unconscious bias. In school and in college, I often held back when I knew the answers to questions. I did not want to “one-up” people in my class or be labeled as a “know it all.” I also knew there were negative connotations to being labeled as too smart, too confident, or too forward as a woman. I often kept ideas or answers to myself.
Funny, isn’t it?
