13 Amazing Companies Led by Women For Women

Let these female leaders inspire you.

Excerpt from the article: SUSIE BERGQUIST, SALT + UMBER: Salt + Umber's mission is to make beautiful handmade shoes for women using minimal machinery, which reduces their carbon footprint. Recycled materials are also incorporated into the design and production process, and the company stays away from using chemicals that are washed back into the eco system. The woman behind these chic yet sustainable shoes is Susie Bergquist, who caters to the eco-conscious customers looking for an accessible price point. Bergquist is paving the way for women in the footwear space: "I am proud to be a female founder of a business that is dedicated to making women feeling empowered. If you take a look at some of the big names in footwear, you will find that a majority of them are men’s names. I always found it ironic that there were so many women out there wearing shoes that had a man’s name for a brand/logo. As a woman, I feel that I truly understand my customer and what she’s looking for in a shoe and incorporate that into each of Salt + Umber’s designs. I’m in the business of making women feel confident with their wardrobe choices. When you look good, you feel good."
