“I feel authentic. I feel heard. I feel powerful. I feel all this and more every moment I spend with VALLETO. Each woman that makes up this company has a voice that can shake this world. It is inspiring to be in the same virtual “room” together. Collectively we make up a fierce group that no amount of distance can separate or silence."
