Being a Catalyst
Transforming Workplaces, Advocating Diversity & Inclusion,
Enabling Resilient & Impactful Leadership
Gina's purpose to be a Catalyst and make a significant difference to a more diverse and inclusive world. "Catalysing" resilient, impactful people to find their leadership voice is at the heart of our work in organisations and our communities. Gina provides her time and expertise to professional and social projects that directly support Women, Students & Children.
This is a simple extension of similar causes she supported over her life starting in the 1980's in Southern Africa as a teenage psychology and teaching student. Accelerating social impact in parallel to organisational change, became formalised in the 1990s in her professional training, coaching and change roles in global consulting and mncs.
