“I strongly believe that gender equity is not just a moral imperative but also a smart business strategy. As a woman who has worked in media, marketing, and tech for many years, I have seen firsthand the positive impact women can have on businesses, communities, and economies when empowered to succeed. When women are given the tools and resources to thrive, businesses thrive, communities prosper, and economies grow. That is why I will continue to advocate for women and play my part in ensuring we continue to work towards gender equity in all aspects of society.”
