A New Wave Of Female Leadership

By Tara Good

Interview by Tara Good, HOLR Magazine.

What is one of the most common themes you are seeing currently when it comes to women stepping into their positions of power and purpose? What barriers are they facing, and how is a movement being created around this?


'We're witnessing more and more female entrepreneurs achieving success and making an impact by trusting their instincts and following their hearts. These women are surrounding themselves with people they trust, building diverse teams who challenge their point of view. They are dismantling the barriers women from previous generations have faced by completely changing the conversation and co-creating a world in which all voices are heard.'

 

How can we as a society (both women and men) support female entrepreneurship in a more impactful way?


'I think that we need to pave the way for those who are just starting out. We are all at different stages of our journey, just trying to make our way and make sense of the world. Mentorship is essential. It opens doors and it opens minds. The recipient benefits from a mentor’s knowledge, experience, and networks. And the mentor, in turn, gets a fresh perspective and through the process of teaching others, really gets clear about what works, and what doesn’t.'
