Find someone who’s been there and done it and happy to share, challenge, and support you in your ambition. Then challenge yourself to do what feels uncomfortable or just outside what you think is your reach - make it a goal, and make a plan. Even if you don’t quite get there on the first attempt you’ll learn a load and make yourself ready for the next one.”Charlotte Walshe - CEO Jade Software
It's important to support women into roles they may (incorrectly) perceive they're not qualified for, to advocate for potential employees to back themselves, be open to learning and prepared to work their way up. First and foremost, we look for a can-do attitude, great work ethic, loyalty, and positivity. Having a growth mindset and a willingness to pitch in with tasks that might lie outside your position description can go a long way to helping you achieve your career goals.”Peri Drysdale - Untouched World, Founder & Chief Executive
