In your life, there will be events that shape you and change you. These experiences will define your story.
Growing up in New Zealand, an immigrant family, I had my fair share of challenges, which are not unfamiliar to many. As we traverse through life, our experiences can make us reflect on what identity means, can influence who we are and how ultimately, we can try use this for good.
This philosophy has crafted my views on inclusion and diversity in the workforce namely, intersectionality and my style of authentic and empathetic leadership. This event aims to encourage and motivate people to dig deep into their own stories, using them as a source of inspiration.
Owning your story to develop your own authentic leadership.
