#GirlBoss: redefining what a boss looks like

Too many of us grew up only seeing one kind of boss or leader in the media. The lack of representation for other groups reinforced harmful stereotypes and acted as a self-fulfilling prophesy, but would our opinion of what a leader looks like be different if the media did a better job at representing the true diversity of leadership in America?

Women and other under-represented groups are already leading many great companies, organizations, & academic institutions; others are authoring best-sellers, building engaged audiences, leading movements and more.

We encourage you to check out the female leaders we’ve highlighted below, follow them on social media if you find their work or story interesting and most importantly do your part to #fightstereotypes

This year has been huge in my personal & professional development. I started in the mortgage industry in 2015 at West Coast Funding. From office manager, I moved up into loan processing, while also becoming a notary public. This year, I received my NMLS certification to become a loan officer, as well as my real estate license. I am currently focusing on business development & marketing for @brandonmartinez247, co-owner of West Coast Funding: I attend real estate caravans, networking events, open houses, client meetings, & every other industry related event to help facilitate relationships & bring our services closer to you. Questions about down payments or down payment assistance? Credit concerns from first time buyers? Agents looking for a lender who can close in 8-10 days? I’m your liaison for all of the above, & I’d love to meet with you! Thank you to @theleehometeam for the new headshot, ready to crush it in 2019! 🏠 . . . . #headshot #realestate #realtor #nmls #loanofficer #broker #firsttimebuyer #homeowner #homeowners #sandiegorealestate #sandiegonetworking #lender #prmg #networkmarketing #networking #marketing #socialmediamarketing #socialmedia #career #adulting
