In this episode of Evolutionary Exchanges, Consultant Emily and Analyst Caitlin speak to Carola York, Managing Director in Europe of Financial Times Specialist.
As we continue to celebrate International Women's Day, Emily and Caitlin speak to Carola about how her experiences of corporate life have been shaped by her experiences as a woman, including finding female role models in her industry, balancing motherhood and her career, and maintaining a sustainable work-life balance. Carola's incredibly varied and inspirational career has spanned from publishing to e-commerce roles, and taken her across the world from London to Hong Kong and back.
This year's theme for International Women's Day is Equality versus Equity. In this episode, we discuss why we need Equity in the workplace, and why Equality is no longer enough. We consider how equity is for everyone, not just for women, and how the message of International Women’s Day looks to provide women with the opportunities to provide overall good, for everyone.
We hope you enjoy this conversation, and happy International Women's Day from all of us at Evolution Partners.
