Cindy Gallop’s Wisdom

“… don’t use words like ’empower’ and ‘celebrate’. Use words like ‘hire’, ‘promote’, ‘pay’, ‘raise’, ‘bonus’, ‘fund’, ‘invest’, ‘enrich’ – and DO IT.” —Cindy Gallop

This list applies to International Women’s Day. It feels like a simple, effective, and universal framework for consciously approaching allyship — specifically because it directly addresses the complacency of using words like “empower” and “celebrate” as destinations versus beginnings.

  • Hire
  • Promote
  • Pay
  • Raise
  • Bonus
  • Fund
  • Invest
  • Enrich

What a great gift from Cindy! —JM
