Dolce Empowering Women
Dolce is proud to present its first-ever class of “Dolce Empowering Women,” who demonstrate passion and excellence in their respective fields.
It is special when intelligence and beauty come together. Moreover, it is more exceptional when the female entrepreneurial spirit flourishes to improve the world. Dolce felt it would be fitting to showcase this class of incredible women because they have achieved excellence in their fields as well as embody what la dolce vita is all about. They teach us that la dolce vita is more than just luxury and panache. Rather, it is also doing what you love and leading by example to inspire others to reach their full potential.
These mothers, sisters and granddaughters understood early on that life is only beautiful when someone works toward creating the life they want to live and being the change they want to see in the world.
These women are more than just professionals but role models in their community because they teach us that visionary ideas are not dreams but fuel for one’s ambition and tenacity. They teach us that the pursuit of education and professional development will lead to doors of opportunity. They teach us to roll up our sleeves and never shy away when hurdles arise. Rather, those women press forward with fiery determination and tunnel vision because sometimes the right path is not always the easiest one to take.
We are proud of every one of these incredible women because the success of their lives’ work reflects the beauty of their characters and work ethics.
As the famous Italian proverb observes, Chi non lavora, non fa l’amore, which means “One who does not work does not make love.”
