We were inspired to create We are the XX because of how pervasive the feminist conversation is and how important we believe it is. We both share a professional history in the communications / media creation industry and, beyond this, we’ve both done extensive work within the social impact space.
// Inherently female attributes are essential to moving progress, power and the entire leadership conversation forward.
// Feminism is not a sidebar discussion. It is central to all that’s relevant from pop culture to politics to international development.
// We are the XX believes our voice is only as loud as yours and that this super-word needs us all to define what it means for us, this moment and this movement.
