Episode 116: Seeds of Change: How Small Actions Can Create a Positive Legacy in the Workplace


Ever felt the sense that gender inequality in the workplace is somehow our fault as women?

We often hear:

  • We’re not confident enough.
  • We let imposter syndrome hold us back.
  • We’re not ambitious enough.
  • We lack leadership skills.

It’s as if we just need to do more female leadership development and that will help solve the problem!

Well, today’s guest is here to change that narrative.

My guest is Joy Burnford, the author of the thought-provoking book, “Don’t Fix Women.”

Joy challenges the prevailing narrative surrounding gender equality, urging us to shift our focus from changing women to transforming the systems that hold us back.

Join us as we delve into the concepts and practical strategies presented in her book, and explore how we can create a more inclusive and empowering world for all.
