You know what they say: Behind every great woman is… a great woman. Over the past few years, Xanthi, Sandy, and I have had the privilege of growing CommunicateHealth into a 40-person powerhouse of talent. The majority of that talent is women.
And so I can’t think of a higher honor than being named one of the 2015 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies by the Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO). Our growth is the byproduct of an impressive team of working moms (and dads) and passionate young professionals who show up every day ready to lean in, stretch out of their comfort zone, and give 110%.
In fact, we will hire a working mom at every opportunity. Why? Because they’ve likely accomplished 27 tasks — and responded to email — before your alarm goes off in the morning. The same goes for young women just entering the workforce. More often than not, it’s these women who can be heard saying things like:
- Would you like me to run the meeting tomorrow?
- I was doing some research on this account…
- I think I found a better system for tracking our expenses.
There are over 9 million women-owned companies in the United States. We are proud to be one of them — and, more importantly, we hope to add some former and future CommunicateHealth employees to the ranks.
