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.

By Claire Ebrey · December 8, 2021

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?
