This month, THINK EQUAL Project Director, Leanne Foy meets Mariagrazia De Angelis, General Manager, Middle East and North Africa at LANDOR & FITCH.
Mariagrazia speaks expertly about how women can support themselves to progress in their careers, sharing tips on how to develop a success tool kit. The tool kit includes; developing self awareness skills, the importance of authenticity and where to look for training opportunities. Mariagrazia’s passion for equality and diversity is clear as she encourages women to be fully aware of their skills and what they can bring to the table. After all, diversity isn’t just the right thing to do, it drives business success.
Mariagrazia also shares how LANDOR & FITCH have developed two WPP initiatives, Walk the Talk and Fast Forward, which provide a support system for female leaders. We hope this episode inspires women to develop their skills and for business leaders to support them.
- How to build your own ‘success toolkit’ to include exercises in self awareness and authenticity
- The importance of taking accountability for your personal development
- Why everyone, regardless of industry or position, should be seeking a mentor
As well as her incredible work with LANDOR & FITCH, Mariagrazia is one of the Founders and Board members of the WPP Stella Network in the UAE. Find out more about the WPP Stella Network - https://www.ceoaction.com/actions/wpp-stella-network/
