Mentors

Follow their footsteps. Follow your heart.

Our mentors and role models are amazing women who have built and navigated workplaces over the last 20 -25 years. They (CEOs, Founders, CHROs, CXOs and business leaders) come from financial services, banking, health, pharmaceuticals, technology, FMCG, airlines, entertainment and the social sectors. They have followed different (and difficult!) paths, but they are united by their passion to bring more diversity in the workforce.
