Our changemakers address what is wrong in our society and in our communities. To challenge the mis-steps that are still common in our overblown bureaucracies and unjust practices.Our young rising stars demonstrate grit and courage to help those whose needs are compelling. They have already excelled against the odds to achieve often unimaginable goals.
All the women featured in this book have all of this in common. And yet each of their stories is unique and inspiring.
As you read their stories, imagine yourself in their stead. Consider how their motivations and yours are potentially aligned. Leadership doesn’t mean anything, unless and until you focus on what you can do in a society that may be waiting for someone who is not just like you, but actually is you.
Decisions are made every day, and each one determines how the future is moulded into a long-term vision. I pray for the wisdom that I’ve never been sure I possess. I have learned to trust my instincts and have no problem in soaking up the knowledge of others that I’m so lucky to have around me. Everyone featured in this book has helped to inspire me. There is always much to do but I have an increasing belief that together we can change what we know is wrong and make our world a better place.
The women in this book are all heroes, and the role models for the next generation of female leaders. Together they represent the caucus of women who are creating the power to make a difference.
I hope to meet many of you who read this book and think you may like to join us on a journey that I promise will never ever be dull.
