8 Brilliant Pieces of Advice Every Woman Needs to Read

While it’s our belief that any day is a good day to celebrate the women in our lives, International Women’s Day provides the perfect opportunity to sing the praises of all the phenomenal women in our community with added gusto. The official holiday, celebrated annually on March 8, is all about amplifying female voices to inspire, advocate and encourage the advancement of women everywhere.

This year, Rose Inc and its parent company Amyris have adopted the theme #BreakTheBias, with the aim of demonstrating how we can all break biases in our communities, workplaces, schools and beyond. “It’s important that our team represents diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We work to empower the next generation, really bringing our junior team members into the fold,” explains Rose Inc CEO and President Caroline Hadfield. “At the same time, we see the value in parents who’ve stepped away from the workplace to raise children and returned. Their perspectives and experiences are especially valuable in fast-paced environments.”

To further celebrate, 10% of sales from RoseInc.com on March 8 will be donated to Scientific Adventures For Girls (an Oakland-based nonprofit organization that aims to increase the number of women in STEM fields) and Women's Earth and Climate Action Network (an org which engages women worldwide in policy advocacy, on-the-ground projects, trainings, and movement building for global climate justice).

From creatives and founders to doctors and veteran CEOs, diverse backgrounds and perspectives are plentiful across the Rose Inc community. Read on for valuable advice from our inspiring community of women on life, work and motherhood, along with their hopes and dreams for the future. 

“My dream for women in the future is that they recognize their own voices and power, and continue to break barriers and create their own limitless journeys.”
