With a mission to expand to an additional 100 campus chapters, The Women’s Network (TWN) recently launched a chapter at American University slated to begin in the fall.
Along with creating a network to connect women to industry professionals, TWN also works to redefine ambition.
The network sees a negative connotation around the word “ambition,” often used only to describe women, and they break that down through the podcast “Redefining Ambition.”
“I have heard many people describe women as ‘ambitious,’ and often it has this demeaning, condescending undertone,” TWN founder Jamie Vinick said. “And in TWN, we’re seeking to upend that notion and highlight that it’s an incredible thing to be ambitious, to have drive, to possess really tremendous aspirations and goals in life.”
