Unleashing Future-Proof Female Leaders

In a digitally disruptive world, it’s not just about the survival of the fittest, it’s about survival of the fastest. The World Economic Forum estimates that closing the gender gap with economic parity for women will take 202 years. For women, this massive gap represents loss of opportunity, not just loss of income. Nikki believes that the most effective way to close the gender gap is to help more women gain momentum with adaptive strategies, leadership skills and access to resources. That’s why Nikki is on a mission to unleash future-proof female leaders who will dominate in the digital age and drive lasting social change.
