Catherine Ngo spent more than a decade working in corporate HR roles for top ASX companies, before discovering she could pursue a successful career as a writer and presenter. She’s a mum to a little human and two dogs, indoor plant collector, amateur stand-up comedian and entrepreneur, recently founding Keynoteworthy to offer diverse speakers a platform. Here, Cathy talks creating a more inclusive world while channeling her inner Lee Lin Chin and listening to the Spice Girls. 

Future Women is the only network who, I feel, truly embrace an intersectional mix of voices. This means that events and social meet-ups are diverse in line-ups and topics. I’ve connected with a few members and formed friendships which is beautiful. I find as you get older, it’s challenging to meet new people. What I love about Future Women is that it offers a safe and inclusive environment for me to be me.

You’ve hit the glass ceiling. And our paywall.

Help us smash it by becoming a Future Woman for as little as $4 a month.
