I am proud to announce that North Carolina has brought Levo League to her Queen City! I am so absolutely thrilled to blog about it. Every gen Y female I've met, I tell her about this incredible organization that bring like-minded women together to rule the world. No really, I know it is feminist but hey, it is what it is. I root for the ladies!
For those of you who do not know, I am a local Charlottean. I have seen this city grow exponentially in the past 20 years...hell the past 10 years have been unreal for Charlotte. There are many incredible things to hype this Panther town up about. I am not even sure where to start. All I can say is, I'm feeling so blessed that Levo chose me to be one of two women to head up this launch.
Let me rewind a little bit and give you some background on Levo ["ley-vo"] and how life changing it is to be a part of a global organization so powerful and influential specifically for women. I feel like the about section on their website sums them up pretty well, so I am not going to try and re-invent the wheel here:
Levo is a growing community of professional women seeking advice, inspiration, and the tools needed to succeed.Levo League is your career cockpit for the first phase of your professional journey. During these years, you decide what you want to do, who you want to be, and how you're going to get there. Success means something different to each of us. We hope the support from Levo's community of like-minded women will be invaluable in helping our members achieve their career goals.Levo is the Latin root of the word “elevate,” which captures our mission for professional women to ascend together, strengthening us all in the quest to achieve our career dreams.
