Each March, we commemorate and celebrate the vital role that women have played in American history. This year, we have another historic event to celebrate – the election of the first female Vice President of the United States, which will serve to inspire women everywhere.
CMC also has a rich history of empowering and inspiring women as a women-founded and women-led organization. We are a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) certified organization that understands the importance of employing and supporting women – and diversity generally – with the hope of bringing a broad range of experiences, skills and backgrounds to the table.
In honor of Women’s History Month, women across CMC’s footprint share their thoughts about what the holiday and CMC mean to them.
“Women’s History Month is a time to celebrate the strength of women. I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by women who are independent and strong, which has inspired me to be who I am today. I am a woman who knows her worth, what I bring to the table and am never afraid to eat alone.”
Kadiya Kasongo, Customer Care Representative
“A women’s strength is like that of the ocean – calm, steady, deep, unknown, yet incredibly powerful. Women’s History Month celebrates these qualities and all of the women who came before us that helped pave the way for our success.”
Gayatri Mehta, Executive Assistant
“Women’s History Month is a reminder to me of all of the accomplishments and contributions women have made in history and recognizes achievements that may have gone unrecognized. Working for a women-led organization is important because of my daughter. She can grow up knowing that women can do anything and overcome any barriers to succeed.”
Tiffany Murphy, Administrative Assistant
“It’s inspirational to me to work for a women-owned and led organization where there’s an equal footing and opportunities for women at all levels. It also has a huge impact on me personally because it shows my daughter the positive impact of having equal opportunities and feeling empowered – both in society and at work.”
