Why is innovation important to you?
Innovation expands the realm of possibility and enables creative solutions to the world’s problems. Without innovation there is stagnation.
What drives you to make a difference?
Making a positive difference in the world creates a fulfilling and purposeful life. As Jane Goodall says “What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make”.
Do you have any advice for getting more women into the innovation ecosystem?
Do customer interviews with a wide diversity of women to find out what works for them and what it would take to get them involved in the innovation ecosystem.
Provide part-time accelerators and incubators. Women are disproportionately over-represented within the part-time work force and need opportunities that account for this.
Empower women to recognise their strengths and believe in their ideas then support them financially and socially.
