Meet Vanessa Vallely OBE – another of 2022’s kindness superheroes. Akua Opong tells us all the amazing ways that Vanessa shows kindness in her work and her personal life:
“Vanessa is the founder of a number of initiatives aimed at achieving gender parity and raising the profile of women in the workplace. Through We Are The City, and We Are Tech Women‘s conferences and events, Vanessa and her team have helped to upskill and connect over 15,000 women.
Vanessa touched my soul and empowered me to see that Women working in the City can make a difference, with the right approach, despite a male-dominated environment.
Vanessa is a wonderful mentor, coach, role model and inspirational leader that is keen on gender equality, women in stem, and a fair world for all. She continuously champions everyone and is an incredible ally in the industry that advocates for equal opportunities for all.
She has helped me during a breakdown and so many women to thrive plus give others an opportunity through speaking opportunities, career development and training.”
