At Jivox, we’re privileged to have a bunch of women with a spirit that reverberates the unstoppable culture we’ve built over the years. This was nowhere more apparent than in the year 2020 when, almost overnight, we had to shift to remote work completely. For many women, this meant wearing many different hats as they balanced their responsibilities at work and home.
In celebration of International Women’s Day, we asked our women employees to give us a word corresponding to each letter of the phrase, “The Unstoppable Women of Jivox” and to describe what it means to them.
Take a look at the word puzzle we created from each of the responses we received:
“Together: We’re all in this together and go above and beyond to make our colleagues, partners, and customers successful.” — Aanchal Kumar
“Happy & Hopeful: We smile and laugh a lot here at Jivox, proving that happy women are the prettiest both inside and out. And we always live each day with a hopeful heart.”

“Endeavoring: We women try very hard when we make an earnest attempt to do or achieve something.” — Jasika Sahu
“Unwavering: We as women are often strong, confident, and steadfast no matter what the situation is both in our personal and professional life. We all face situations where we are at crossroads at some point in our lives and what determines us are the choices we make. We can choose to be either sad and bitter or stand up again and pick up the broken pieces. After all, what does not kill only you makes you stronger.” — Mirilla Woodward
