Loving KARE's Women Crushing It Wednesdays Campaign

At K2 and Company, we pride ourselves on being woman-owned and operated.  It has taken a lot of hard work, grit and tenacity to get where we are today. Each of us has had strong female role models that has shaped us into who we are and we are constantly inspired and amazed by our female peers. To that end, Kare11 is celebrating all of the incredible things women are doing in their communities and their professional lives.

Each Wednesday morning, Kare11 features one Minnesota woman – they could be your neighbors, coworkers or family members - who are inspiring and achieving great things in their jobs and daily lives. They have highlighted women from all walks of life, industries and backgrounds. From Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan, the highest-ranking indigenous woman ever elected to executive office in the country, to Winny Brodt-Brown, captain of the Minnesota WhiteCaps Women’s Hockey Team who just won the National Women’s Hockey League Championship.

As a new women-owned and operated business, we know the incredible successes and persistent challenges women face in all facets of life. Recognizing the growth and accomplishments and supporting women right here in our state and communities is crucial to motivating and encouraging not only each other but the next generation of female leaders.

If you know of a local woman who is “crushing it,” help us celebrate her by nominating her  here.

We are so excited to hear about the wonderful women in all your lives!
