As we enter the fourth quarter of the year, deadlines, budgets, and annual goals are racing for our attention. It sometimes helps to lean on the saying, “go slower to go faster” to get everything done. There are many ways to hit reset, from exercising to organizing a closet—things we can do while also thinking about our looming to-do list. Another way to reset and find inspiration is to read up on who’s inspiring us in beauty. For inspiration on leadership and success, look no further than CEW’s 2021 Women’s Leadership Awards Honorees. All 16 women and men have shared their tremendous stories on success, leadership, and overcoming challenges in this online publication.
