During my interviewing process with Vortexa, it was really clear from my chats with Jessica (the Head of People & Ops) and Fabio (the CEO) that the company puts people that work here in the centre of everything they do, and I knew I wanted to be a part of that team.
In your opinion, why is it important to celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month? What do these annual events mean to you?
Even though things are going in the right direction and women around the world are becoming a strong voice and getting the recognition they deserve, I think there is still a lot of work that should be done to remove the disparities. Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day are brilliant opportunities for all of us to open up conversations and encourage us to continue working together on bringing in more inclusivity and equity.
Which women inspire you?
My biggest inspiration is and always will be my mum. Her perseverance, kindness and generosity towards others were the qualities that I always admired and I aspire to.
What was the most important piece of advice you’ve been given that you’d like to share with other women?
The quote I want to share is from Elizabeth Day: “If we are able, as much as possible, to remove both fear and ego when we encounter crisis, we will see failure more clearly for what it is: not as something that defines us, but as a missing piece of knowledge that helps us come closer to completing the jigsaw puzzle of who we truly are.”
