Inspired by International Women’s Day, we profiled several of the awesome women who work in our spaces to celebrate their success.
Leah Stanistreet owns Snappystreet Creative
, an audio & visual creative content studio helping businesses create engaging, innovative content. With over 20 years experience in the media industry, creative storytelling is my passion!
I asked Leah a few questions (with an IWD slant) so we could all get to know her better and here’s what she said:
I have been so lucky to work some truly incredible and talented women over the last few years. I love empowering women in business to shine online. As a female business owner myself I understand the importance of authenticity and showing up online, but appreciate this doesn’t come easy to everyone. So I try and make this FUN! I love digging deeper in to their “why” and helping to tell that story through images they are proud to share for everyone to see. Celebrating them from behind the lens allows them to feel comfortable in front of the camera and SHINE for the world to see!
Q: Tell us about your experience with gender inequality?
Having worked in the media industry from a young age, there was always a level of gender inequality in the industry. It was rare to see women working in the same space as me, so this resulted in some push back both internally and from clients. There were hardships along the way, but I am hopeful my experience and time in the industry has played a small role in helping to normalise women working in this industry now.
Q: What is your favourite local female-led business?
I really love everything Sonia has done with Little Lane Workshops! She does such a great job of bringing so many amazing female-orientated workshops (artists, makers & crafters) to the Beaches. It’s a beautiful space – a place to relax, unwind and get creative!
