What are you reading at the moment? I love having several books on the go at once. At the moment it’s Any Ordinary Day by Leigh Sales, The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates and My Life as a Goddess by Guy Branum.

What are you listening to? Lizzo and Beyoncé on the audios, and I’m a political tragic with podcasts like Pod Save America, Lovett or Leave it and The Daily, as well as the brilliant local Ladies, We Need To Talk.

The future for women is… Radical generosity.

We can lift each other up by… Putting women up for promotions, deliberately supporting them. If we can all do this for each other, we should hopefully get more women applying for roles they are absolutely capable and ready for – even if they don’t see it.
