It’s exciting, and a little daunting at the same time, to be a woman in the financial services sector – you’re definitely walking into what is, predominantly, a man’s world. I feel it especially when I walk into a room and there’s usually just me, or maybe one other woman, and 10 or 12 men.
However, the working world is beginning to accept that women have a significant role to play. Being at the forefront of that and being able to change perceptions is the exciting part. Things are certainly different to when I started my career at RSA 22 years ago.
