Technology is a beautiful thing - and this week it enabled us to chat with Anastasia Kraft, Founder and CEO of Xena: Workwear For Women.
Anastasia started Xena out of the frustration of working in a manufacturing environment where the only options were to wear bulky, manly work boots.
Ana shares, "What you wear has a major impact on your self-confidence, which in turn impacts a number of other job-related factors, including performance, promotability, and long-term career success."
With the mission to support other women in male populated fields, Ana has devoted her career to developing versatile workwear that capture women's needs while also paving the way for future generations of women in the safety field.
To celebrate Ana's success we mixed one of her favorite cocktails - - a Brandy Old Fashioned. She first tried this drink when she moved from Germany to the United States and it has since been a nostalgic reminder of her move to the US.
Let's raise a glass to Ana - - and celebrate her success of merging functional and stylish workwear to the safety field. 🥂
