I strongly believe with women making up ~50% of the world population they are underutilised and under empowered. I really would like to see how corporates and governments can help with the empowerment of women in enterprise, entrepreneurship and Education.

I am concerned that the women’s economy does not get enough attention from world leaders. I am keen to support this effort to work directly with the G20 on behalf of better governance for women’s economics.

I decided to accept the offer to take part as I have seen several cases over the years of women being walked over for managerial roles in traditional jobs such as chartered accounting in favour of jobs for the boys when they were just as able. I have also seen the imbalance of sexes in this area and others like consulting, government, business and experienced business networking where women have been ignored as they have "a little hobby" rather than a business.
