To show support for International Women's Day, beyond one day, this is the second of our seven interviews with our brilliant women in leadership roles at Aspire. We have interviewed seven of Aspire's extraordinary women who share their personal experiences, challenges, and breakthroughs as they have become the role models they are today. By giving us their best advice on how to approach a leadership role, things to consider when managing others, and other golden nuggets of advice, we want to help you feel empowered to aim high, and just go for it.
Whether you’ve toyed with the idea of becoming a manager, looking to claim your position as a business director (or similar), or simply want to get noticed for going the extra mile, these women, and Aspire, are right behind you! We hope this answers your concerns and helps reduce inequalities between genders.
