Women’s History Month

When celebrating Women’s History Month, we at Carolina Assessment Services are striving to lift up the voices in our community. Columbia is a fantastic and ever-growing city that can provide the means for business to thrive. In honor of lifting those voices, I have compiled a few of our favorite local, women owned business to explore this month and beyond. While this list is not exhaustive, I hope it will serve as a nice start to exploring the community and empowering the women in our lives. Women have historically been told to stay at home, so this month we are lifting up the women who are putting in the work to better themselves, their families, and their communities.

As the daughter of a small business owner, I have had the privilege of getting an inside look at what it takes to run a business, care for employees, and tirelessly work to better the community. This month, and celebrating women’s successes, is a huge passion of mine and I am so grateful for the opportunity to highlight something so close to my heart. As an intern this semester at Carolina Assessment Services, it has been such a pleasure to see how the women at this practice are working to empower themselves and others. I have so many fantastic role models to look up to as I explore my own passions and work to understand myself as a woman. I am honored to celebrate these women who have continually pushed me to develop my own skills and view of the world. Without community, we would not be able to rely on the support that we so often need when difficulties arise. Without women, we would miss out on so many opportunities for growth, empowerment, and love. This month, I hope that you will continue to empower the women in your community and remember all of the hard work and success that they bring to the world.
