We are interrupting our regularly scheduled programming to share our new mission and manifesto.
When we launched more than two years ago, She In The CLE’s mission was dedicated to driving conversations with purpose by women in the Cleveland area. This has not changed. But we wanted to make sure that our mission really reflected why we do what we do.
We want all women to have a voice and raise topics and start conversations that matter to them. We are simply the platform to help them do it. It is not for us to say or to judge what the purposeful conversations are or to change the voices of those who are sharing them. For far too long women have been silenced, and we hope to change that.
So, we’re excited to share with you our new mission and manifesto. We hope that whether you’re a dedicated reader or new to our site, you’ll find something here for you.
She In The CLE’s Mission
The mission of She In The CLE is to raise the visibility and voices of women through purposeful conversations.
Who We Are
She In The CLE is a blogger collective that helps raise the visibility and voices of women in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio by creating a platform that allows women to tell their stories, network and engage in purposeful conversation. Through our website, social media channels, newsletter and events, we help amplify the voices of women in our community.
We believe in the power of the female voice.
We know representation of all women is important to the progress of our community. We give women the opportunity to raise their visibility and the power of their voice by engaging in purposeful conversation.
We amplify, never dictate.
We amplify the female voice, never dictate what it should say. We know that not every woman thinks the same way and healthy, respectful debate only makes us stronger. We provide a channel for women to engage and discuss topics at all levels. And we do not judge.
We prioritize collaboration over competition.
We know we stand taller and stronger when we stand together. And only by working together and lifting each other up will we truly make progress toward equal representation.
