Rethinking entrepreneurship: the LGBT+ Leaders of the Future – Sharon Davies
Sharon Davies is Chief Executive of Young Enterprise, an enterprise and financial education charity operating across the UK.
In this meeting of the UK LGBT+ Leaders and Directors network Sharon Davies, CEO of Young Enterprise, joins us for a conversation on LGBT+ leadership and entrepreneurship, we discuss:
Who are the LGBT+ leaders of the future?
What are young queer people experiencing when growing up, starting businesses and climbing career ladders?
Does being LGBT+ bring some advantages to a young entrepreneur (such as increased resilience, emotional intelligence)?
What additional challenges do they face because they are LGBT+?
And what support do they need from established leaders?
