Jenae Grieveson

What do you think is the most significant barrier to female leadership?
There seems to be a belief that if a woman succeeds it’s because she’s an exception; she’s overcome adversity and defied the odds. Not due to hard work, a level head and demonstrating the skills and savvy to get there. Women need to back themselves and support their peers, just like men do!

What would your advice be to women who are trying to achieve their career ambitions?
Keep your head down, work hard and have faith in yourself. Own your successes, own your failures – you learn from both.

What have you learned about leadership, entrepreneurship and mentoring others?
A good leader empowers you. They push you forward, encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and give you the tools to grow. They celebrate your achievements because it means they’ve done a good job too.
