Did you know that only 6% of pilots and 14% of engineers are women? It’s true. Clearly there are still a lot of arbitrary assumptions surrounding which jobs are for whom. In partnership with Olay, we’re here to help tell a different story—one about women who are trailblazing, persevering, and truly thriving in historically male-dominated careers. Through our collection of inspiring stories below, we want to spotlight what empowerment looks like and encourage women to pursue their dreams. This is Empowerment, IRL.
