A boutique image consulting firm introduced #WomenWithNoLimits in 2020 after seeing many young women paralyzed by toxic workplace environments and lacking a voice professionally. I enlisted a group of successful women who had overcome their own professional obstacles through support from their peers and community organizations.
Over the last three years #WomenWithNoLimits has evolved into being a supportive community dedicated to helping in one another’s quest to build successful businesses, to model successful leadership in our communities and to nurture the next generation of women. The luncheon series aims to help women understand the importance of professional presence as a key step to achieving life goals
Each of these women have an extraordinary story to tell and on May 3rd we met in Boston, Massachusetts to share new lessons learned and strategize about future initiatives. We also had the pleasure of hearing from Pauline Brown.
Kelley Tuthill, COO at Catholic Charities
A Breast Cancer advocate, Kelley believes that professional presence means it’ okay to take some time while handling things when you’re unsure of what to do and if you need a break into something. It is knowing when you needed help and knowing how to ask for help that is critical to long term health and well-being at home and at work. Her challenges at Catholic Charities stem from the years of scandal in the church and she reminded us of all the incredible work that Catholic Charities does in Boston and around the world. She is hoping everyone in our group will give the organization a change and volunteer to help in any of their initiatives.
