Are there young women in your life who are already making a big impact in the world?

This week’s episode is a little different as I am chatting with two young women who have identified a problem that, if solved, would impact the health, education, and income of a community in desperate need.

Bridget Muturi and Janelly Torres are the co-founders of Women Innovated Empowered & United (WIEU)

I invited Bridget and Janelly on the podcast to raise awareness of the problem they’ve identified and to hopefully raise the money they need to make their work a reality. Being college students, they don’t have a PR or communications team and though they’ve never been on a podcast or done anything like this before they were excited for the opportunity.

In this episode Janelly, Bridget and I chatted about...

  • The current conditions for the community living in Kibera, Kenya
  • The high cost of feminine care products and the impact it has on the health of the women in Kibera
  • The solution Bridget and Janelly came up with and what their initiative will look like
  • The design, planning, and collaboration that is happening to make this project sustainable over many years
  • What you can do to support their work

Perhaps never before has the focus of mental and emotional wellness been at the forefront of leadership.

According to the Harvard Business Review, “mental health challenges are now the norm among employees across all organizational levels.” In 2021, during a follow-up study to their 2019 Mental Health at Work Report, seventy-six percent of respondents reported at least one symptom of a mental health condition in the past year, up from 59% in 2019.

The pandemic impacted every area of people’s lives, and has been a leading factor in an increase of mental health concerns. And it is not behind us yet.

Taking care of yourself is vital: if you are depleted your health, work, and ability to support others will suffer.

This episode explores why, as a leader, taking care of your mental and emotional wellness, and supporting your team to do so as well, is critical.

Have you been struggling with your wardrobe lately?

During the pandemic many of us reverted to a uniform of professional top matched with yoga pants or sweatpants. We were video conference ready and that was fine when we were working from home with cameras on.

Now that return-to-office, hybrid work, in-person conferences and networking events are full-steam ahead, you might be feeling less than excited about the options in your closet.

Our clothes can help bolster our confidence or make us feel blah. And for many of us, our bodies changed, if ever so slightly over the last 3 years.

For the past 6 months or so I’ve been looking at a closet full of clothes convinced I had nothing to wear.

Then I met Jenny Eversole, the founder of Stylespace. Stylespace.com is a virtual styling platform to elevate your style with expert stylists. After nearly a decade running her own fashion label, she learned how personal style can make a big difference in one's confidence, happiness and overall success. Jenny founded Style Space for people to discover their best style and to look, feel, and BE their best.

This is what Jenny shared with me:

“Throughout the years, our lives change, and as we age, our bodies are meant to change too. With each new season of life, we have the opportunity to express this new chapter with our personal style. It takes time and learning to know what works best for us in this new stage of life. An expert stylist can be very instrumental in helping us define our style in whatever stage of life we are in.”

I took Jenny up on her offer and did a session with a member of her team. I was so thrilled with the results I asked Jenny to come on the Women Taking the Lead podcast to talk about the struggle many of us are having with our closets.

In this episode Jenny and I chatted about:

  • What changed during the pandemic
  • Styling for the office vs. Zoom (Hybrid dressing)
  • Dressing like an executive, approachability
  • My experience working with a stylist
  • 5 takeaway tips you can apply today
