Sandra gives us insight in to the two products of Ellect namely Ellect Stars in Gender Equality and Supplier Diversity Marketplace.

It’s 2022 and I ask her why are we still not achieving Gender Equality?

What is ESG and how is that helping with Gender Equality in Business?

We chat about the challenges and pushback that Sandra has experienced so far in her business.

Sandra shares the benefits to Corporates in ensuring gender diversity and the positive impact it’s having on “the bottom line”…Profits.
