WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO

be bold?

After 12 years of experience working in talent acquisition at some of the biggest global companies, I decided that it was my time to make a difference. I wanted to use my broad experience to help and serve women.

 

Therefore, I redirected my focus to better support women’s desires, understand their challenges and help them become more empowered within the workplace.  As a result of this, I co-founded BBold Sarl to pave a path for women to be bold. 

 

At BBold, we understand that diversity and women’s leadership are crucial topics for individuals and all organizations that want to promote inclusion and ultimately stay competitive.

 

We welcome you to join us, to step up, defy the odds and help us to set up a new standard!

 

BBold and take action...
