How do you empower yourself and other women to have a voice and a seat at the table?


Remember your purpose and what impact you can make – I always keep in mind the difference I am trying to make either to organisational success or individual success and this is what drives me. I strongly believe that having a clear vision and purpose can help individuals to have a voice – bravery comes from being clear on the goal and keeping this at the forefront of your behaviours and actions will support you in raising and having your voice heard. Remember you are in control of your destiny – be picky about the people and organisations you work for…do they have strong values and a focus on EDI? If not I would suggest that they won’t see your value and your experience will be very different to working for an organisation or team which values diversity and embraces inclusion.
