These 992 and 997S models are uniquely crafted, from design to development, by the power, grit and commitment of women supporting other women.
...showcasing what women can accomplish when we work together and when we're given the chance, is extremely important. We have immense talent among the women in New Balance and projects like this challenge us to do better.
...we're here to serve the female consumer who wants a shoe that speaks to her and she wants it to tell her story.
I hope that by the end of this decade we have a level playing field in all male dominated industries and that we're giving women the opportunity to create and co-create and deliver great programs like this to all industries.
This process was amazing because it really brought a lot of women together that maybe would not have worked together before into the fold and we really built a community and I really enjoyed that.
I really try to promote a collaborative work environment. I think it's important that everybody in the room has a seat at the table and has an opinion that matters.
This project is important because it's more than just a shoe. There's a purpose, a reason behind it... to celebrate the achievements of women, the accomplishments of women, and really to see what more we can do in the future.
...empowering each other is very important and seeing somebody who you can relate to that you look to as a role model, really encourage you and push you is inspiring.
...this program was so refreshing to be looking around the table and seeing every single person was contributing meaningfully to this program, and they were all women.
...it all comes down to teamwork... we should be lifting each other up, supporting one another, and when you're in the minority, there's always power in numbers.
I hope projects like this continue to bring awareness to the importance women play within the workforce as well as lead the way for sneaker brands to speak to women in a unique and authentic way.
I think anybody supporting anybody is important, but women overall, just because we have to prove ourselves time and time again.
As a supervisor, every time we make a women’s shoe everyone is happy because women are doing it. So, we feel happy and proud of the work that is finally achieved.
I hope that “all-women” or “mostly-women” environments will no longer be notable. Right now, “all-male” or “mostly-male” environments are considered normal. Why should it be any different for women?
I think it's important to highlight the fact that women work in a man's world... it's manufacturing and there's a lot of women that are downstairs doing a man's job.
