OUR VALUES

Our challenges are our own, yet for so many women the roadblocks standing between us and our purpose are remarkably similar.

Maybe you feel haunted by the sense that you should be doing more with your life but don’t know where to start. Or maybe you know exactly what you want to do/be/create, but doubt and fear tell you that you are unqualified, idealistic, naïve, selfish. What would our world look like if the women we celebrate had stayed quiet?

We believe in bold decisions.

We believe tenacity and success are traits that can become learned behaviors.
We believe health and self-care are critical elements of success.
We believe the world needs what you have to offer.
We believe sisu will make resounding impact in a woman’s pursuit of equality, justice, and achievement.
We believe in the power of putting one foot in front of the other.
Sapphire West is passionate about building a community of women who exemplify the concept of sisu – who use sisu to fuel and empower their lives. We partner with organizations, businesses, and individuals dedicated to advancing women in the workplace, in politics, and in society.
