The Change Agent
As a child, Charlotte was passionate about drama and theatre, and now believes a great team is one where everyone brings a diverse skill set to the table and has a distinct role to play – just like in a production. Throughout her career, she has employed the same mantra, recognizing that the implementation of diversity, equity and inclusion principles has the potential to make society and business more successful. As a speaker and advocate for women in the workplace, Charlotte knows that it’s integral to have the stars of the show lift all cast members up – and that positive change and progress deserves a round of applause.
