The new year welcomes a new generation of inspiration
(BPT) - In 2012, the world watched as women made historic gains in everything from Congress, with an all-time high of 20 women in the U.S. Senate – to the field, where they’ve won 100 total gold medals at the Olympics.
In 2013, MAKERS.com moves us to reflect on the important advances made by women in years past to inspire the path forward. Presented by Simple facial skincare and created in partnership with AOL and PBS, MAKERS is a multi-platform video experience that celebrates trailblazing women by sharing their compelling stories. These stories, featured on MAKERS.com, showcase a unique variety of women – from high profile game-changers like Diane Von Furstenberg, Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice – to six local heroes from across the country who have been recognized as Next MAKERS for their inspiring work across technology, education, mental health and more.
The Next MAKERS, including Reshma Saujani (New York), Emily May (New York), Anna Rodriguez (Tampa Bay, Fla.), Col. Jill Chambers (Washington, D.C.), Olivia Joy Stinson (Charlotte, N.C.) and Lydia Cincore-Templeton (Los Angeles), were selected from more than 1,200 nominations sent in during a six-week nationwide search for extraordinary women making an impact. Their stories are now featured on MAKERS.com alongside Supreme Court Justices, Secretaries of State, CEOs, athletes, activists and entertainers. In addition to sharing their stories, the women each received a $10,000 grant from Simple facial skincare to further expand the important work they are doing in their communities.
