Recognizing Our Best
International Women’s Day 2019
International Women’s Day gives us a collective opportunity to focus on the diverse and critical issues of diversity, equality, and gender balance in both our professional and personal lives. We are truly blessed and yet challenged to live in a time when understanding and acceptance of true gender equality is constantly evolving, and yet we know that there is so much further to go and work to be done.
The theme for International Women’s Day 2019 is: ‘Think equal, build smart, innovate for change’. The focus of the theme is on innovative ways in which to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.
Lead by Purpose and Example
Here at LadderUp we are led by the very best and on this International Women’s Day we want to recognize a woman who has built us into an organization that both models and promotes the true essence of unconditional equality. Angela Rodenburgh started our firm a decade ago with the goal of creating and establishing a brand management and marketing company that would exemplify the ideals of excellence, dedication, development, and focus.
Ten years later we are a multi award winning firm that has a singular focus on providing uncompromised quality of service and strategy to our many clients. Our team is lead by a woman whose commitment and work ethic are unmatched, and proof that female CEOs, presidents, managers and leaders of every kind should be encouraged and trusted in every industry and professional capacity. Across multiple industries and with countless companies and individuals, she has successfully created a firm that intentionally steps beyond the expectations and norms into a space that fosters success for every partner we engage, and for every employee we hire and grow.
Into the Future
As the engagement and promotion of women in every field of study and every career role continues to grow, we know that here at home and around the world, opportunities for women and girls is ever increasing, yet there is so far to go.
As recently as December 2018, Small Business trends reported that still only 20% of tech jobs are held by women (Infographic), and we know that in many industries the numbers are far less. Around the world women still fight for the basics of equality and fairness, and even the possibility to explore their potential. We hope and strive for better days ahead and believe in the encouragement and education of girls throughout society.
We thank you Angela for a diverse and inclusive firm that exemplifies all that you are as a leader and know that our clients do the same. We are continually better for your leadership – as a marketing and branding expert, as a cultural leader, and yes, as a woman.
If you are looking for a partner to bring your business ideas to life, and to successfully help you build your brand through comprehensive strategy and experienced knowledge, Ladder Up is ready to help you achieve your sales and growth goals. We are experts at what we do and love the engagement we experience with each and every client.
