Michelle is the founder and owner of Advancing Women in Business & Sport, co-host of global online businesswomen’s network A Career that Soars, co-founder of CDW (Culturally Diverse Women) and the host of the Lead to Soar podcast and Advancing Women in Sport podcast.
I am fearless in the pursuit of what sets my soul on fire – closing the global leadership gender gap and enabling women from all walks of life to have a career that soars.
My son and daughter, my nieces and nephews will one day inhabit a world where women and girls are valued and respected and equal, where men and boys can rid themselves of the shackles of toxic masculinity and where every human, no matter how they identify, can reach their full potential.
I am an unapologetic, passionate feminist and inclusionist, who, because of my white skin and education has enormous privilege and influence. I am determined to harness my privilege, my passion for women’s rights, my business acumen and my networks to have a positive global impact on society.
