ELISABETH HOLDER RABERIN

“Ladurée is a family business. I have to fight because I am the youngest. Sometimes I have to remind them I’m not a 15-year-old.”

KIRSTEN GREEN

“As opposed to talking about all the bad behavior and the ways in which women have been held back over time, we said, let’s get together to build community amongst ourselves and shine a light.”

Karmen Berentsen

“I realized I wanted to work in an environment and industry I love and in one where I could be a part of helping people.”

Hillary Super

“There’s no reason for us to be competing against each other, because there’s room for all of us. The place that each of us is meant to be, we’ll find it.”

ANNABELLE SELLDORF

“Ideally, I don’t want anyone to think about me as a woman in architecture. I’d rather just be thought of as an excellent architect.”

CLARE VIVIER

“I get to do what I love, and employ a team of wonderful people in our studio. It’s like a dream come true.”

STEPHANIE GILMORE

“When I was a kid, I remember dinging up my surfboard on some rocks, and I said, ‘Oh no, what am I going to do?!’ I remember him saying, ‘Don’t worry, it’ll make you go faster.’ I’ve never forgotten that.”

STACEY GRIFFITH

“We ask people to—for 45 minutes, three days a week—spend time aligning their thoughts, their heart rate and their lungs, and answer questions about how they want to live. When you line up all those different pathways, that’s when you actually create change in your life.”

AMY CAPPELLAZZO

“I’ve always been interested in the pivotal moments in art history, when artists changed the course of things.”

PAT STEIR

“I want the viewer to see what they see and find what they find hopefully it’s a trigger for an inner dialogue with themselves. I think of art—not only my art but of all art—as a trigger rather than a message.”

MARGARET KILGALLEN

“Margaret Kilgallen was an idealist, intuitist, inventor and in all likelihood, a genius. A generation of artists, writers, designers and craftspeople feel her absence of poignantly and her influence pervasively.”

WOMEN OF KENYA

“The time I spent the Turkanas, a Nilotic tribe, was a real eye opener for me and I am grateful and honored to have photographed them.”

KATE BOSWORTH

“This being my first time professionally published, I put an enormous amount of thought into my choices. Who is the definition of a great ‘Citizens of Humanity’?”

DONNA LANGLEY

“I’m not a fearful person by nature. I love taking risks and approaching life as an adventure. But of course, as a parent and chairman of a studio there are days where the fear can feel real.”

MARTHA RADDATZ

“I don’t see myself as one of the leaders in journalism, but I know others do. I think about that a lot. Especially when it comes to young women. I am deeply flattered when young women say they look up to me. It is also a profound responsibility. I want to do right by them.”

COURTENEY MONROE

“My two greatest accomplishments without question are my children, Miles and Lola.”

WE ARE HERE BECAUSE WE ARE STRONG

“We cannot be weak. We escaped the war. No other human will give you that strength. I had that strength inside of me. I had the courage to do whatever has to be done. Sometimes I say to my daughter, now we are here. I tell her to the feel the courage.”

AMY WILLIAMS

“I love working as part of a collaborative team” says our CEO, whose enthusiasm for denim is still going strong.
