We celebrated Women’s History Month with Eliza VanCort, who taught us how to spot the Scarcity Myth and build a community of women who will uplift, support, and help us soar. Historic lack of access has resulted in women sometimes diminishing each other in the workplace rather than amplifying and supporting one another. We committed to working together to change that. Eliza also offered tips on how to succeed through human connection.
Eliza VanCort is an in-demand consultant, speaker, and writer on communications, career and workplace issues, and women’s empowerment. The founder of The Actor’s Workshop of Ithaca, she is also a Cook House Fellow at Cornell University, an advisory board member of the Performing Arts for Social Change, a Diversity Crew partner, and a member of Govern For America’s League of Innovators. Her first book, A Woman’s Guide to Claiming Space: Stand Tall. Raise Your Voice. Be Heard., publishes May 2021.
A special thank you to Girls Write Now mentee alumnae Mariah Dwyer, Publicity Assistant at Fortier Public Relations, for putting us in community with her client Eliza VanCort!
