Inspired by International Women’s Day, we profiled several of the awesome women who work in our spaces to celebrate their success.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to Clare Robinson, who owns Clarety Coaching & Consulting , Clarety is a human-centred development business that exists on the edge of what is needed now and into the future for people to flourish and grow. We offer executive coaching and leadership development programs that luminate leaders to light the way in their organisations for others to follow.
Q: Tell us about your experience with gender inequality?
When I was running an advertising agency, I walked into my first agency leaders forum. Of the 50 people in the room, only 2 were women – I was shocked. Up until then I had worked for female leaders with diverse leadership teams and it hadn’t occurred to me that this imbalance was so pronounced. I made it my mission to connect with as many female leaders as I could and was one of the founders of the first women in leadership team there. We pioneered events and created the first female mentor program. I’m incredibly proud that I was able to support so many women and be a positive role model for them.
Q: How do you celebrate women in business?
My role, as the owner of a business with a female team, and as a woman who has coached 100’s of female leaders, is to lift women up to find their voice and own their seat at the boardroom table. There is no greater privilege in this world than supporting women (and men) to be successful. I actively encourage my clients to talk openly and vulnerably about their success & their journeys (the highs & lows), as a way to inspire themselves and others.
Q:How do you help forge a gender equal world?
I have a range of both male and female clients who run large scale organisations and teams. My role is to help all my clients activate both their masculine and feminine energy to make them better leaders & to help them harness the power of more diverse teams.
Thank you for sharing all of this Clare!
