International Women’s Day
This year International Woman’s day is about Choose to Challenge, about raising our hands and taking responsibility to challenge gender bias and inequality.
As Finance Director at Mistral Group I have the pleasure of working with many amazing women, both in our business and within our industry, all of whom inspire me to be a better person. I am lucky to work with some very strong willed and intelligent woman who bring a lot to the business, who can hold their own in a debate and add a different point of view to any discussion.
I joined Mistral just over 2 years ago and have been supported by both the business owner and the MD to thrive in my career. I joined as a finance Manager and quickly became a director, I sit on the board with 3 men, all of whom have a wealth of experience and knowledge in the industry, I have learnt a lot from them all. I have also taught them a lot by modernising our processes and information streams and adding my own approach to resolving problems over the last 24 months.
In the year 2021 I have challenged myself and the board to empower the women in our business to take individual responsibility for their thoughts and actions, collectively we can all create an inclusive workplace for both now and future women, an environment we can all thrive in.
Let’s celebrate women’s achievements!
