This "activation" marries fashion and career advice through cute backgrounds, selfie opportunities, career advice, and outfit ideas- I mean, who doesn't love a good wall to have a photo opp?
I love that the activation is interactive as Westfield UTC is surrounded by many office buildings (like mine) and gives career women an opportunity to share "what's your secret to success?" on a white board. Westfield UTC is also just down the street from my Alma Mater (University of California, San Diego) so having this sort of career empowering installation (and the sweepstakes that I will mention below) is a great tool for students who are just at the beginning of their career.
The founders of Who What Wear wrote "Always have your own unique point of view" (Hillary Kerr) and "The most proactive people win" (Katherine Power) on the secret of their success white board (pictured below). I instinctively wrote my favorite quote from Oprah "When you do your best, people notice". It is a very simple quote that resonates with me because after working in corporate America for over 15 years, I learned that just doing the job description will not give you kuddos or appreciation, but it's been going above and beyond that has brought me and the people I serve (our clients) the most gratification.
Make sure to visit the installation which will be up until the end of May! Check out more on this BossNotes series including videos and advice from top fashion bloggers here. You can also enter the "Dress like a Boss" sweepstakes (here) where one lucky woman will get $2000 and a stylist to take their career wardrobe to the next level!
