Reason for being involved in workshop: I believe that a boardroom should be filled with people who complement each other in terms of experiences and background. We need all voices to be heard! Being a speaker is a way to grow from a successful professional into an influencer and a leader. The Global Diversity CFP Day enables exactly that; it helps people build the confidence and acquire the skills needed to be on the journey to becoming a leader.
