It’s that time of year again—time for #My3words. It’s my pleasure to announce that #My3words for 2024 are advocate, listen and lift.

Why do I select #My3words each year? In 2015, I read about Chris Brogan’s idea to choose three words in the new year to guide your choices and actions. Ever since, I’ve been picking my own three words to serve as guideposts for my path, helping me keep my goals and values at the forefront of everything I do. They remind me to focus on what matters and let go of what does not.

This year, #My3words were inspired by Gavriella Schuster, Board Executive and DEI Advocate. She joined us as a guest speaker at our Women Get On Board Inc. virtual session that tackled a timely topic: allyship. To break down the core behaviours of an ally, Gavriella introduced the acronym ALLIES. Her powerful discussion on the role of allies in enabling diversity galvanized me, igniting my desire to do even more this year to support the next generation of women in business. Guided by her framework, I have chosen the first three letters of the acronym and their meanings: Advocate, Listen and Lift as #My3words this year.
