According to Today I Learned (courtesy of the following Reddit post), the state of Wyoming has much to be proud of. By standing strong to support the rights of women to vote, they deserve our recognition and a special call out. It is a proud heritage genuinely earned, and an important lesson taught to all, which inspires us to act upon our beliefs and values.
Actions such as these help set the stage for women to gain more positions of influence in areas such as business and politics.
We would also like to congratulate all of the women who won house and senate races in the 2018 election. According to NPR, 121 women will serve in the 116th Congress. This represents over a 20% increase, which is an all-time record high number of women working in Congress. Along with record voter turnout for a mid-term election, having more women elected to Congress is a very encouraging, and positive, trend for all of us.
Women.MBA and our career-coaching partner, Careerismo, commend the good state of Wyoming and the 2018 women of Congress. More victories, for more women in more fields and professions, are yet to come.
