Meet the Summer Residents
Can you believe summer is finally here? It feels like it was still snowing just a couple weeks ago. Oh wait, it was… But now the weather is nice, the birds are chirping, the pollen count is high, and our summer residents have arrived.
This summer, we’re welcoming an editorial resident, a social media resident, and a graphic design resident.
You might be thinking, “Yay, but what does a resident do?” A resident is kind of like an intern, but with more of an emphasis on mentorship and growth in leadership than on getting coffee and filling out spreadsheets. Mentorship is one of our four pillars and a special passion of ours, because if we’re not taking the time to invest in young women, can we really accomplish our goals?
They truly keep this company afloat, finding, creating, editing, and promoting new content, events, and more. This is the third cohort of residents and they will be with us for the summer. The cohort will be led by graduates of our spring editorial residency, Lindsay Combs and Lauren Lewis, and Ellen Huggins, graduate of our fall 2017 editorial residency and our new residency director.
Now that you know what they will be doing, it’s time to meet the residents!
