I’m excited to share part two of my interview with Vanessa. In this segment of our conversation we discuss the importance of creating space for traditionally feminised skills as we form and work towards new environments, particularly in public life and politics. Vanessa is co-founder and director of The Activate Collective, which champions new voices in UK politics through funding and training underrepresented female activists.
We discuss the vision behind the movement, the incredible leadership potential that is born through lived experience, and the importance of waking up to how gender has, and continues to affect the potential of our career; something that is impacted by culture and in policy making.
Prepare for an engaging conversation that will provoke you into considering what it means to be fuelled by your values, to centre diversity and to champion the innate knowledge and skills that exist outside of university, boardrooms or current parliament.
