In this episode, we talk with Kate Monserrate, co-founder and director of Simplify Consulting.
Kate, together with her business partner Carl and their team decided to invest substantial resources, in terms of financial, personnel, and time resources, to create a seriously impressive whitepaper on a topic that could make us wonder: gender equality. What does gender equality have to do with financial consulting? It turns up, a lot.
Listen to Kate as she runs us through the 3 areas of their whitepaper:
- Education and fighting stereotypes about gender roles from a very young age
- Women's life stages (particularly the effects of motherhood and menopause on career)
- Internal barriers like impostor syndrome.
Kate shares very useful insights on how to address these matters, never expecting "women to fix themselves" but advocating for change inside companies like hers to foster a more inclusive future.
