Whether your workplace is incredibly conservative (suits for men and women) or equally casual (there are folks in sweats on the daily), showing up as your best and most authentic self can be a real challenge.

P.S. If you are a Washington resident (like me!) you should have received your ballot in the mail. Make sure to vote! Don’t wait. Make it happen. Want to get more involved? Take a look at Swing Left, Wall of Us, Resist-bot or any of the local campaigns for candidates and initiatives you care about. Many folks who don’t vote, skip it because: they think they aren’t informed enough about issues, they don’t know how to vote, they forget or just run out of time. The time is now. You’ve got this. And if you need a little help, consider the google or heading to a local resource that is aligned with your values for some suggestions. For example: Progressive Voters Guide, Seattle Times What You Need to Know for Election 2018, The Stranger’s Voting Guide 2018
P.P.S. In 2004, Christine Gregoire was elected Governor by a margin of 129 votes! Every vote counts, folks.
