The election hit us hard.
Witnessing a woman’s pioneer campaign for our nation’s highest office has been incredibly powerful for the women at Left/Right Media.
Our company depends on the talent, intelligence and strength of every member of our team, and today, we want to especially celebrate the girls. We are all honored to live in Austin, where women’s voices are heard and talents are valued. In the wake of the latest presidential election, we, like much of the nation, feel a sense of defeat for women everywhere. We want to help relieve that weariness by standing strong, protecting each other, and offering our support for all women who fight for their dreams.
The women in our office are uniquely extraordinary. Each of us has a story that led us to this career, and we are proud of both the struggles and triumphs we’ve experienced along the way.
“Instead of living in fear, we are making a positive change within our office walls to defend women and advocate for our values.”
Our female staff has lived through a lot of challenges – college, cross-country moves, bullying, terrible bosses, self-doubt, people telling us we’re not good enough, mansplaining, rejection, lay-offs, motherhood, unemployment and sexual assault. In spite of it all, we’re successful. We’re also champions. We remain undefeated and focus on our potential.
Let’s not waste our momentum.
On January 1, 2017, our creative agency made a commitment to women-owned or operated businesses* by offering them our web design, branding, and marketing strategy services at 79% of their full value to reflect the gender wage gap that continues to exist in the US. We hope that this helps women invest in themselves, take a leap of faith, and keep working towards their ambitions.
If we can help support you or someone you know, please email our Co-founder, Bo Duncan, and she will be in touch with you immediately.
*If you identify yours as a woman-owned or operated business, we want to hear from you. We’ll help develop your brand, your website, your content, your portfolio – all assets that will help you succeed. This is not a political thing. This is a woman thing. We will never consider race, religion, sexuality, or political affiliation in this or any other opportunity. New contracts only.
