Invest in Women
According to Forbes, women in business often say that they’re scared they may actually achieve more success and therefore hold themselves back from moving UP. That same article said that women with disposable income have extreme reservations about spending development money on their careers. They would prefer to spend it first on children, home and others before spending it on themselves.
One reason joining UPWARD is free to join is to help women remove their own mental barriers from moving UP. Even though their future is WORTH it, many women choose not to invest in their career advancement.
