LOUISVILLE, KY—Women’s history is human history. As leaders everywhere from the home to the boardroom, women’s individual and collective contributions to society cannot be overestimated.
Atria Senior Living is home to more than 15,000 women whose stories of triumph and perseverance provide wisdom and inspiration to the next generation. In honor of Women’s History Month, Atria will share these stories through Atria StoryWise, a collection of thoughtfully curated topics and cues designed to spark memories and help people connect more deeply through the power of storytelling.
“Atria is an outstanding company that values and celebrates the women who were suffragists, activists and worked so hard to level the playing field in their professions,” said Billie Jean King, who serves as Atria’s well-being coach. A champion for social change and equality, King is the winner of 39 Grand Slam tennis titles and the first female athlete to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
“Change is made by each generation working together to ensure equality for all and open new opportunities for those who follow them. Atria’s commitment to sharing the stories of their residents’ generation will serve to remind us all how the hard work and accomplishments of these women helped bring us to where we are today – and inspire the next generation to continue their work to make the world a better place for everyone.”
Throughout March, Atria employees will use the Atria StoryWise app to record and share residents’ stories on Atria’s media platforms. Stories will focus on professional achievements, civic engagement and meaningful advice for the next generation. Apple users may download the app for free to record, share and keep the stories of the remarkable women in their own lives forever.
