Providence, R.I. – Friday, July 21, 2017— Carrie Majewski, Founder and CEO of the Women in Leadership Nexus, was named to the Providence Business News’ “40 Under Forty List.” The annual list recognizes 40 men and women, under the age of 40, “who are successful in their careers and involved in their communities,” according to the newspaper.
“It is truly humbling to join such an awe-inspiring, accomplished group of professionals who are committed to making a real difference in our local communities,” says Majewski. “When I started the Women in Leadership Nexus, I was passionate about uniting likeminded women who believe in the importance of exploring, shaping and applying the principles of a next-gen leader. My work has allowed me to meet some of the most dynamic, fierce, empowering women and for that I could not be more grateful.”
This year’s honorees were chosen from nearly 200 applicants, the most submissions PBN has ever received. Each honoree was also interviewed and profiled in a special July supplement. When asked where she sees herself in 20 years, Majewski responded: "I envision myself running onto a large stage, microphone in hand, looking out at a sea of thousands of women who are committed to flipping the leadership paradigm as it exists today—to fight for the fact that leadership is a choice and not about title and hierarchy. I take center stage ready to deliver my speech… the one about how we as women have a responsibility to do better, to be better. To be staunch advocates of one another; to nourish each other’s talents. And I am humbled and incredibly excited that my taking center stage in front of a crowd of this magnitude symbolizes the success of my organization, the Women in Leadership Nexus."
Majewski, 29, was the second youngest honoree to make this year’s list. The celebration of the 2017 class took place Thursday, July 20, at the Aldrich Mansion in Cranston, Rhode Island.
Founded in 2017, the Women in Leadership Nexus empowers women to recognize that it’s not title or hierarchy that defines a leader; rather it’s a mindset to actively and intentionally choose to lead. Through in-person events and an interactive online community, the Nexus unites women looking to explore, shape and apply the principles of a next-gen leader. The Nexus will partner with the Tech Collective for its next event, a panel discussion on the characteristics of a non-traditional leader, which will take place in mid-October.
“The Women in Leadership Nexus creates safe space for strong, powerhouse women to unite and challenge archaic beliefs about leadership and hierarchy,” says Majewski. “Through our work, we help pave the way for a more favorable business environment that promotes empowerment and inclusivity, regardless of someone’s rung on the corporate ladder.”
