    Season Two Wrap Up

    Season Two Wrap Up

    Equality Talks Season Two has been absolutely amazing to be part of and I cannot believe the calibre of women that I've had the chance to speak to. I have learnt so much from the wonderful women this season.
    The theme that really came to me when I was reflecting on the season is generosity. I was blown away by the amount of generosity all our guests showed with their time, their wealth of information, and their true desire to see other women succeed.
    Have a listen to recap this season's episodes.
