#BeBoldForChange: International Women’s Day 2017

#BeBoldForChange

International Women’s Day 2017


“Being bold is taking small steps to move an industry forward. It’s a compilation of small everyday gestures that ingrain equality in our being.”- Rachael Holtzberg, Digital Strategy, Monitor Deloitte


 

This year, the theme for International Women’s Day is #BeBoldForChange. Our inspirational Fold Women share the times they’ve behaved boldly for something they believe in and which women they admire for being bold in their careers everyday. Join the conversation on Wednesday 8th March and share your story on Twitter and Facebook where we’ll be sharing/retweeting our favourites.

Amelia Torode

Chief Strategy Officer, TBWALondon

“I behaved boldly when I helped launch a Youth Board at global communications agency, Chime, to tap into the energy and amazing ideas of our millennial workforce.”

“I admire Bethany Koby, the inspirational founder of Technology Will Save Us, an incredible children’s toy company encouraging children to build code themselves.”

Phanella Mayall Fine

Co-Founder, Step Up

“I behaved boldly writing our book for Step Up. By exposing and committing your beliefs and ideas to paper you are laying yourself bare, but the overwhelmingly positive response made it a risk that has paid off.”

“I admire my friend Cinders Paxton, a travel writer, photographer and adventurer. Whilst being so incredibly free, Cinders stays true to her passion for new people and places in her work.”

Alice Olins

Co-Founder, Step Up

“I behaved boldly when launching Step Up. We are forging a new path by changing the conversation around women’s careers. Sometimes this feels scary.”

“I admire my friend Jennifer Reid, who launched the charity Teddy’s Wish after losing her three-month old son to SIDS in 2014. Her boldness isn’t about raising money, it’s about remaining dignified and humble in her grief. This is boldness of the most admirable sort.”

Claire Vero

Founder & CEO, Aurelia Probiotic Skincare

“I behaved boldly by going with my gut instinct and launching Aurelia solely online. Trusted contacts told me I was mad, but now, online beauty is huge and I’m so glad I went ahead.”

“I admire Kit Kemp, Co-Owner and Design Director at Firmdale Hotels. I’m so impressed by the variety of partnerships she’s involved in and admire her style, individuality and flair for interiors.”

Liz Perks

Partner, Haberman Ilett

“I behaved boldly as a young girl at school, standing up for what was right against my teacher and classmates.”

Dr. Manuela Rabener

Co-Founder, Scalable Capital

“I behaved boldly when I left my career shortly before a Partner election, after feeling the urge to become a true decision-maker and build a company myself.”

“I admire Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, for standing her ground and defending the values she believes in amongst a dominated group of political leaders.”

“It’s easy to be bold for someone else or something you believe in; it’s harder and sometimes necessary to be bold purely for yourself.”
