Why is innovation important to you?
Innovation is progress towards a better world. It’s so easy to accept the status quo as being the best we can do for ourselves, but that’s stagnation.
It takes imagination to see beyond, and once you’ve imagined other possibilities, progress towards them must be made.
What drives you to make a difference?
I’m driven by making an impact, and by doing something for myself. Exploring your potential is the most fulfilling thing you can do.
Do you have any advice for getting more women into the innovation ecosystem?
If you have an idea, just start. Find out who can help you make it happen, listen to them and get involved. Accept and make peace with not knowing everything about whatever you’re doing – you’ll learn what you need as you need it.
And CBRIN is the most supportive, engaged network of positive, knowledgeable and diverse people I’ve ever found. If you’re passionate about anything, you’ll fit right in.
