Today for the first time in my Management career a customer acknowledged me. Another woman acknowledging another woman for being where she is and representing for minorities. I have never had a customer or peer do that so it meant a lot for her to do that. Usually as a manager in retail we tackle so much negative experiences from guests, or receive so much unpleasant comments that I was genuinely surprised at her comment. We had a fruitful discussion on many things and it was just refreshing to hear another woman supporting and encouraging another female. We should celebrate each other’s success and cheer for our fellow females, especially when they are in roles which were previously denied to them. We have come a long way and should encourage each other.
