EMPOWERING WOMEN LEADERS

TO BE SEEN, BE HEARD AND AMPLIFY THEIR IMPACT

We as women, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, founders and leaders, are blazing new paths. As the world is changing around us, so are we. Life is unfolding in a very different way. Opportunities continue to arise, but we’re still being overlooked. Conversations are getting louder, but we are still searching for a stronger voice. We cannot become who we want to be by remaining who we are. We know that our life and success expand in proportion to our courage. Our courage to take risks, our courage to use our voice and venture into the unknown.

Career, business, leadership, family, relationships… we are striving for the balance of work-life integration. We know there’s something more. This is about designing our own path to success and breaking down the status quo. It’s never too soon or too late to embrace our true power, overcome fears and limiting beliefs, and develop new mindsets. So, we choose to embody and radiate a stronger, more confident presence.

Who we are is how we lead, and we’re committed to creating a life of abundance for ourselves and people around us. How we show up as a human being, a woman, a leader is one of the most important factors of our impact and influence.

Truth is…If we did all the things that we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.
We are ready. This is our time to lead, to love and to thrive.

More about Giana Lozano

Giana’s story is proof that women who experience adversity can find light at the end of the tunnel. Giana’s life drastically changed when she lost her mother to cancer when she was 23 years old. However, Giana found life in her mother’s passing and was inspired to turn her life around— from not working or going to school to attending one of the world’s most prestigious schools— she aimed high because she knew life was too short not to.

Her belief in “trusting the process” and “everything happens for a reason” is exemplified in her journey— from working retail, to becoming a makeup artist, to her current role as a Product Marketing Manager— she emphasizes the importance of embracing all past selves because it has allowed her to grow in ways she never thought possible.

Giana Lozano is a Product Marketing Manager at Amazon Web Services (AWS) where she combines her love of storytelling and being creative.
