Diversity, the Importance of References

There are times when difficulties can become opportunities and weaknesses can become strengths. This was the case of Marta Fernández, CEO and Founder of LesWorking and Co-General Director of REDI. She was motivated by the difficulties lesbian women face in their everyday working lives to launch a project that would provide them with tools and empower them, by creating an international professional network specifically targeted at this group. In this conversation with Celia de Anca, Director of the Center for Diversity in Global Management at IE Business School, she discusses her own experience and reflects on the need to provide greater visibility for role models that reflect the real diversity of today’s world.
