In celebration of LGBTQ+ History Month, Joanne joined us for a compelling fireside chat. Her inspirational journey and resilience were featured (among others) in the 2019 Channel 4 documentary series ‘The Making of Me’.
Watch now to see Joanne give a heartfelt and authentic account of her transitional journey with anecdotes from her life about what sparked her and what held her back.
Her motivational and emotional story of self-belief and empowerment is relevant to business leaders the world over.
She talked about how she sold her IT business, Gender Transitioned back in 2017, and started a brand-new D&I practice, all whilst overcoming her own imposter syndrome and limiting beliefs.
Some of the takeaways include:
- Understanding some of the challenges she found in the early stages of her transition in the recruitment process and in the workplace environment.
- Highlighting areas for colleagues and managers to provide support not only to a person who is transgender or non-binary, but also their close family and friends who might also be struggling to come to terms with them..
- Learning how to be a better and more effective ally to the LGBTQ+ communities.
