On this day 2 years ago, you took a chance on an idea. You decided that the way we train individuals on sexual harassment in the workplace needed to change. And from that impact and determination, the comic book Define the Line was created. You rallied behind us, showed us that the "crazy idea" we had wasn't was so crazy, and that our world was ready for something new.
A lot has happened in the last 2 years. And we feel incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for your contributions and dedication to sparking change in your organizations, on your teams, and in the world.
Define the Line has impacted over 3,000 people (and counting) and it's all because of you! Because you took a chance on an idea and made it into a reality. And for that, we are eternally grateful.
As we look to the future and how we can impact those that need it most, we first wanted to take a trip down memory lane and share some of the highlights from the last two years.
Moriah helps bring the comic book pages to life and creates images that show how sexual harassment shows up in our workplaces today.
Define the Line's work to impact women (and men) in the workplace is nominated for the Marcile N. Wood award.
The amazing Kickstarter backers (that's you!) get their Define the Line rewards just in time for the holidays.
Define the Line receives the Spark Award from the Better Business Bureau for the positive impact work we do.
Define the Line gets 5th place in its first-ever pitch competition. And while we didn't take home the grand prize, we sure did learn a lot!
Define the Line tries to grab the attention of Ellen DeGeneres (and they're still trying to this day!).
Define the Line's work is featured in publications across the U.S.
Define the Line partners with Tell Jane to launch the British English version of Define the Line in the UK.
The world gains over 3,000 Define the Line allies who are ready to speak up, define their line, and create change in their organizations.
It has been an incredible journey over the last few years and we can't wait to see what the next two years have in store. As we look towards the future, we're excited to announce a few things:
