The three-episode Intersectionality and Inclusion Event Series explores the necessary but difficult work of individuals and organisations engineering a more equal and inclusive world.

We are bringing together leaders and activists who are already making an impact. Hear how they start to tackle these issues and learn how to bring much needed changes to your organisation.

Women entrepreneurs: building inclusivity and tackling world-scale challenges 

No two women experience disempowerment in the same way.

Black women, indigenous women, women from poorer backgrounds, trans women – they experience different challenges tied to their different identities. It follows that empowering them will require different kinds of work and different kinds of change.

We speak to three successful entrepreneurs, Christelle Kwizera, Alison Price and Leah Lizarondo, who have not only founded entrepreneurial businesses in male-dominated fields but are also using their work to tackle climate change and sustainability issues. We ask them how they navigated their way through these challenges to come out on top.

Co-hosting the event with Bridget Kustin is Amanda Ellis, co-chair of the WE Empower United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Challenge. Christelle, Alison and Leah have been recognised for their achievements by WE Empower who run a global business competition to honour, support and celebrate women entrepreneurs who are advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and inspiring communities to create the world we want by 2030.
