Women Finance Leaders
Since March 2020 we've been interviewing women FDs and CFOs in PE/VC-backed and growth companies to gain insights into their careers, leadership styles and lessons for fellow businesspeople. Look out for a new article every couple of months.
Our mission is to showcase role models for women coming up through finance functions; at the highest levels women remain badly under-represented. It shouldn't need saying: diversity of thought and experience is essential in Boardroom positions; and who doesn’t want the biggest pool possible of senior finance candidates when recruiting at this level?
These mini biographies, told at a time when every finance leader must look for any personal and professional edge they can find, should also inspire anyone in business, at any level, to forge ahead through challenges and opportunities alike in order to make a telling contribution. Enjoy.
