Why me? Do I understand the problems for women wanting to get to the very top in their career? ⇒ Yes, I firmly believe that I do
I have experienced many of the doubts and challenges so often present for a woman seeking advancement and parity in their career. From the start of my working life, my mother was horrified that I wanted a career. She was a lovely, capable woman but was adamant that women should marry, have children and be there to do everything to help their husband’s career, and definitely NOT have one of their own. Her two sisters were dynamic successful career women, but they never married as they believed they had to choose between marriage or a career, and could not have both.
Luckily my father was very liberal and supportive. As my brothers were high-flying businessmen, my father, when I was a teenager, never hesitated to tell me I was capable of achieving their level, or better! However, it did make for very conflicting messages in our household, and my mother being strong-willed, never changed her ideas on women and work! Added to that there were strong cultural differences in our family as my parents were different nationalities and from worlds with different values.
Having worked in challenging positions in international markets, having received regular promotion and now having had my own companies for over 20 years, I have a particular interest in helping women to advance in their careers.
