Do you work to live on your terms while providing for your family financially and emotionally? You're a modern working woman who's paving the way for the next generation just like the women before us. Yet, we still face significant barriers. Oak + Pine exist to empower women in leadership positions and uplift women-owned businesses.
Since the pandemic, 3.5 million working mothers exited the workforce either because they lost their job or took a leave of absence -- undoing all of the hard work for women's equality in business.
Women have been experiencing burnout, with 1 in 5 women expressing they were forced out of the workforce reducing the number of decision makers who can enforce policies on behalf of women.
Funding's a challenge. The US has 12.3 million women-owned businesses generating over $1.8 Trillion, yet only 7% of venture funds are distributed to women.
The Great Recession found its clarity when the industry brought the She-Cession to light. More women are leaving the workforce to start businesses because of a flexible schedule. Yet, the startup world has an insulting 10% success rate, with 11 of 12 startups failing each year. It's important to speak truth to reality because we've fallen in love with the idea of being our own boss.
But the truth is there's more than one way to strive for freedom and flexibility. We simply need to see women as a whole and all the consuming roles she plays in society. We must do better to support her growth, her passions, and honor her boundaries between all aspects of her life. Oak + Pine is on a mission to support the modern working women. We empower women to step into powerful leadership positions to speak on behalf of other other women. We're creating a culture where supporting women-owned businesses is a priority. But more importantly, we want women to know that there are options to design life on their terms. Will you join the movement?
