An award-winning, Shropshire based Diversity and Inclusion consultant has been featured in a book which captures the stories of inspirational women in business, who are all role models.
Teresa Boughey, CEO and founder of Jungle HR and Jungle Diversity has contributed a chapter about her business journey, her challenges, achievements and top tips for the book ‘I am a Woman Who’.
The book has been compiled by Sandra Garlick, Founder of Woman Who Achieves Awards and Woman Who Inspires Network which now operates in partnership with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
Teresa won the Woman Who ….Achieves Change Champion for Women in Business in 2018 in recognition of her work championing diversity and equality for women in business and the workplace. Teresa has also been shortlisted for the same 2019 Award.
On being featured in the book, Teresa said: “I was delighted to be asked to share my journey in an effort to inspire other women”. The theme of IWD this year was #BalanceforBetter which is a cause very close to my heart as I specialise in helping companies understand the steps they need to take to create Inclusive workplace cultures.
“Creating an Inclusive culture, whether that be in government, in the workplace or in the boardroom is vital so that we can truly reflect the communities that we represent and recognise people for their differences. Not only is it morally right but it makes good business sense, companies with a more diverse workforce perform better financially and are more successful in many ways.”
Teresa was also the keynote speaker to over 100 guests at the launch of the ‘I am a Woman Who’ book which took place on Friday 8 of March to celebrate International Women’s Day 2019. She also spoke at three other IWD events that week; The Breakthrough Women Business Event at the Champneys Spa, Eastwell Manor Hotel; all staff at the London based Clarus One Sourcing Services, a joint venture between McKesson Corporation and Walmart Inc. and finally to Pusher, London Application Programme Interface developers, to an 95% male audience and their office dog!
The Woman Who event took place at Coombe Abbey Hotel in Coventry. Attendees met 2018 Awards Winners, Finalists and Judges and the finalists for the 2019 Woman Who Achieves Awards were announced.
