“Some people don’t want to speak to me because I’m a woman. Someone once explicitly said to me, ‘Can I talk to a man who knows what they’re talking about?’”
The path of a female founder is filled with unique challenges.
You not only have a business to keep afloat – with a workforce all looking to you for their next meal – but you must also traipse through the trials and tribulations of living as a woman in the 21st century.
Prejudice, pay gaps, and underrepresentation. It all gets pretty tiring.
Some take it in their stride – propping the door open for others once they’ve got their foot in. But just because you’ve got a seat at the table doesn’t mean you’re listened to. And even if you run the company, that doesn’t mean everything becomes immediately easier.
With this in mind, we want to give you a dedicated space to discuss your challenges with a group of people who truly understand.
This session isn’t structured like most of our events – instead, it’s an open forum, where you can share your challenges, give advice, and generally lean on each other for support.
(It also won’t be uploaded to the members’ area, so you can speak as freely as you like with like-minded peers.)
Come along to share your wins and woes with the group, and get advice from others in your shoes.
