Leading Women: Female mentorship and the power to inspire future women leaders
As part of our Leading Women series, we want to highlight the professional challenges and career aspirations of the women we work with here in Asia. In this story, Alexandra Cerruti, Client Services Director at Design Bridge, shares about the women that have inspired her professional career, what keeps her motivated and engaged at work, as well as how the company at large celebrates diversity on a day-to-day basis.
Q: What have you sacrificed for your professional journey?
Would you ask the same question to a male professional? Unconsciously, people tend to think that women have to make some sacrifices to progress professionally. As for me, I am very grateful to work for an inclusive organisation that gives equal opportunities to all. Three out of every five Managing Directors at Design Bridge worldwide are women, as are half of our most senior-level Creative Directors. Flexible working arrangements are becoming the norm and will be extended in the post-COVID world. This also facilitates a healthy work-life balance. Having two young children myself, I need to be flexible and organised, but nothing is impossible here. Internally, our culture is not to compete, but to celebrate each other and our collective wins.
