Dedication to the Advocacy of Women
I was so honored to accept the 2018 Woman of the Year Award from #WeWillWomen, a bi-partisan organization of 7,000+ members which supports the empowerment of women. -Megan Lopp Mathias
WeWill gives the award annually to an inspirational community leader that embodies the core value of women’s empowerment and has exhibited dedication in her commitment and advocacy for women. I accepted the award before 160 attendees on my behalf, but also on behalf of my community- in which I include my friends, family, colleagues, clients, and other nominees for the award.
I wholeheartedly believe that we all need a village to help us succeed. I thank my wonderful mentors of which I am privileged to include Christie Hefner, Kathleen Henson, Jill Salzman, Kim MacNeill, Emily Kinsman, Judge Eulalia De La Rosa, Andie Kramer, Kristen Prinz, and my mom and brother. I really could not have done this without them.
As I accepted the award, looking back at my table, I realized that it was one of the most diverse in age, ethnicity, race, and religion in the room. I am proud to have a diverse group of friends and supporters and empowered by that energy every single day!
I believe in myself and my community. I work hard to find great humans to surround myself with, and together we do good work that has impact. I am especially proud of this award, as it acknowledges the work that is so close to my heart. Thank you to everyone who helped me get here.
