We are constantly inspired by the women of #AnneKlein. Continuing our #internationalwomensday series, the spotlight shines on them. Meet a few #WomenWhoDo working towards a more gender inclusive world. Next up, @soykim222 - Name: Soy Kim Title: Handbag Designer - How does your approach to your work at AK reflect you as a person? ""I have been fortunate to work with amazing women that are great role models of work-life balance. My career aspirations are a priority, and I have constantly struggled to find the perfect balance or niche between work and personal life. Everyday I see and experience my peers and managers (not only females) sacrifice time and effort to help me learn, which ultimately helps me professionally and personally. From these learning experiences, moments and sacrifice from others, I am truly grateful. Before making the decision to work for AK it was important for me to find strong independent women who can encourage, motivate and inspire me. I can definitely say I have found this at AK. My utmost priority and goal is to raise my daughter, Madison, by leading as an example of work-life balance. I hope someday my daughter and I can have a conversation about the sacrifices that I have made and how she can navigate her own work-life balance. I would want her to know that females can find career success while managing a family. - How have you been effected by gender or racial bias in your life? ""Growing up in the midwest as a Korean-American female, I can say there are stereotypes and generalizations that I have experienced. The stereotyping even came from my family who expected me to find success as a doctor, lawyer, etc. This clearly was not my forte. Early on, I knew my strengths and desires were to follow a ""creative"" career path. I never strayed from my path and it has led me where I am now. - How do you ""be bold for change"" or help raise awareness about equality? ""Since working at AK I have seen mothers ''have it all'' and I have mentors who understand everyday work-related issues that I go through. Female empowerment doesn''t involve just your career but also about empowering women to excel in every aspect of their life.""

Meet a few #WomenWhoDo working towards a more gender inclusive world. Next up, @sharonlombardo1 - Sharon Lombardo Title: Creative Director - How does your approach to your work at AK reflect your personal approach to womens empowerment? ""The idea of embracing every aspect of being a woman through my work and our mission is very important to me. Empathy, sensuality, strength, compassion, and creativity all are typically feminine traits I try to use each day."" - How have you been effected by gender or racial bias in your life and how have you overcome it? ""I think we are all affected, even if its not overtly. I am one of very few female CDs in the industry, which is crazy because majority of the workforce and consumers of this industry are female!"" - How do you approach ""being bold for change? ""By not being afraid to take risks and stand my ground.""

We are constantly inspired by the women of #AnneKlein. For #internationalwomensday the spotlight shines on them. Meet a few #WomenWhoDo working towards a more gender inclusive world. First up, @njaylives - Natalie Jaymalin Title: VP of Finance - ""AK celebrates the beautiful imperfection of womens lives and acknowledges our strength lies in our ability to manage through the delicate chaos of it all, and to do it as a tribe. Personally, because of that, I feel encouraged and unapologetic for being who I am in the office, including my contributions in the wins and my not-so-great judgment calls. Anne Klein the company and Anne herself, has further increased my appreciation for the complexities of the inspiring women I work with, admire each others mastery of multi-tasking, and realize we are not crazy because we are all walking paradoxes finding our strength in our softness. These small realizations have only contributed to being proud in my own skin, and that itself is empowerment, regardless of gender. - Being a first-generation American and going into a male dominant field, Ive had my fair share of bias. I observed it for what it was, not as a slight against me, but a reflection of a critics character. I see it as a challenge to prove to them and my own internal critic, I will not just be acknowledged as smart for a girl but to continually work towards effective leader without the mention of any gender concession. I made an effort to surround myself with a network of supportive people and gravitate towards company cultures aligned with my own personal values of equality and work/life balance. - Since college, I''ve actively participated in undergrad business student coaching + volunteer work centered around support for single mothers, sex education, and job preparedness for women attempting to get back into the workforce. Throughout my career, I continue to unofficially mentor prior employees as they ascend on their journeys. But regardless of career choice, finance or not, the advice is pretty much the same. Cultivate your own self-confidence, nurture your trusted network, and expand your learning, even if it is outside of your current path.""
