“The Spectrum Circle is a community of women and a development platform that allows the sharing of ideas, experiences, and life lessons. Now, more than ever, women’s stories are crucial to our country’s future. We live in a changing global society, but bias, soft bigotry, and politics continue to affect our daily lives,” said Karen. “A dream fulfilled.” From a 2015 white paper to a corporate-backed platform. Women must support, uplift, and share their stories. Future generations depend on us to fight gender inequality.
