This International Women’s Day and every day, we are proud to recognize our inspiring women leaders and allies at JLL.
Who is a female inspiration/role model to you and why?

From the age of 11 when I read the book about the life of Wanda Rutkiewicz, the most famous Polish alpinist, she became my inspiration. Climbing the mountain, reaching mountain peaks, being bold and passionate, perseverant but at the same time subtle and proud to be a woman are things Wanda had in her. Being an alpinist is risky but whoever came up with the saying 'no risk no fun' and ‘no pain no gain’ was very right. It all so resonates with me.

Why does inclusion matter to you?

Inclusion drives stronger social connections, stronger social connections drives curiosity, curiosity drives diversity. Inclusion is the only way we can make people want to be better humans.

How are you inspiring women to achieve their ambitions at JLL?

I encourage women to work on their self-awareness to understand what are the inner mechanisms that drive their feelings and behaviors towards themselves and others. You can only be effective when you know yourself inside out and have personal power to face the challenges — an imminent part of achieving any ambition.
