A Team Icon or Logo

A Sisterhood Culture
All of these things are great – but what matters most is the sisterhood culture that you must create and cultivate. The philosophy that “none of us is as good as ALL of us” will help your team grow and thrive.

- Use your team logo on images and documents you create for your team. You can use PicMonkey to add the image to images for free!
- Repetition is key – the more you use your team name, the more well known it will become within your company and within your community. Even a small team can gain a huge amount of exposure!
