One of the best feelings for me is when I host girl chats. Women speaking their truths about work and life, brings transformation to the spirit. Recently, I hosted a chat and to my surprise, a common topic thread surfaced. How to survive and work within cultures were mean girls exist?
After a lengthy conversation it was apparent that women are still operating in a culture that perpetuates feeling insecure.
