As you’d expect, this industry is male dominated, and there was a period of time in my early career that I didn’t think about or even mind this being the case. Perhaps made easier with my love for sports, I’ve always been comfortable in this working environment. Now that I’ve been incredibly lucky to have both male and female role models and mentors, I can clearly see the benefits to having both who offer different perspectives. I’ve had brilliant male mentors and managers, and having women that I can look up to as well has had a hugely positive impact on me, building my confidence more than I would have expected, and making me realise that anything is possible. I feel very proud and empowered to be a woman in this field.
