IWD 2020 Panel: ‘Women Changing The World’

On International Women’s Day this year, I spoke at a ‘Women Changing The World’ event organised by tech start-up incubator Fishburners.

The panel featured women using their entrepreneurial talents for good. Here are some takeaways.

“You’re not always right, which takes a long time to learn. Everyone has their vision, but keep focused on the common goal.” – Simone Amelia Jordan

“Take up space and flex your voice. Make room, take a spot. At events, at board meetings, wherever you need to be.” – Sasha Sarago

“You need to build resilience. You will be disappointed every second day. Equip yourself with a strong back and a strong network that backs you.” – Carola Jonas

Attendees soaking up knowledge at the #IWD2020 panel

“Stick to your vision and mission. The point of innovation is it is different and it won’t make sense to a lot of people. A lot of it is intuitive.” – Patricia Kaziro

“Value what you bring to the world. We need male energy but we also need female energy and to date, female energy has not been equal.” – Deborah Fairfull

“It does not get easier; things get harder. There are lots of ideas out there and just because something wasn’t your idea, doesn’t mean you can’t get on board.” – Jenna Leo
