My husband worked with Digital Moxie Studios on a project last year and could not say enough good things about Margaux Towne.

“She’s very organized and thorough, making working on her sets a pleasure,” Jeremy Wade said. Beyond that, Wade thought she was creative and flexible. Those were qualities, that, in looking at other arts-related ventures in Omaha, were needed by every leader at those organizations, and several of those leaders were women.

That’s why our main feature this round is about three arts-related organizations and how the women steering the ships lead in passionate, creative ways.

I remember the first time I picked up the Omaha Star, nearly 20 years ago, and read all the good news about North Omaha. It was a refreshing pace from the normal newspaper mantra of “if it bleeds, it leads,” and I still enjoy reading this metro staple. This article was one I personally wanted in B2B—all the females who have headed the Omaha Star have been strong journalists and great businesswomen, and Terri Sanders and her team are doing a great job of reporting and telling stories in the 2020s.

Another feature highlights the Omaha Land Bank, which is entirely female-run, and the last feature is about the first female partner at Northwestern Mutual. We have stories of women driving sports cars, running STEM-based companies, achieving their dreams, and more.

There are many good articles in this edition. I hope you enjoy them all.
