From March 1st to the 31st, Women’s History Month is used to celebrate the contributions and accomplishments women have had towards society, culture, history, and more. Since 1999, MC²’s workforce has experienced its fair share of exemplary female figures that have excelled and played a significant role throughout every department from Creative and Marketing to Sales and Operations.
To celebrate the women of MC², we’ve compiled a series of employee spotlights recognizing some of our female voices that influence our industry’s landscape on a daily basis.
Kicking off today’s spotlight is Nicole Caporale, Account Director out of our Paramus, NJ headquarters.

Q: Name one woman you look up to and why.
Nicole: I look up to the women in my family – my grandmother, my mother, and my two older sisters. We were raised by strong women and we are strong women.
Q: What’s the best part of being a woman?
Nicole: The best part of being a woman is that I am both soft and strong – a combination which I’ve mastered (laughs)!
Q: What does gender equality mean to you?
Nicole: Gender equality means that we need to remember who we are and to forget who they told us to be.
Q: What has history taught us about women?
Nicole: History has taught us that we need to give women the freedom to make their own choices.
Q: Tell us about your favorite female TV leads? It can be a fictional character like a cartoon, actress, director, musician, etc.

Nicole: The best way to celebrate women is to encourage, support, and empower each other.
Q: If you could grant all womanhood one superpower, what would it be?
Nicole: The superpower that I would grant to all women is confidence. The biggest step to self confidence is to do exactly what you’re afraid to do.
