Special Episode: Stop Fixing Women

March 31, 2019

Beatrice Cornacchia

“In the world of gender inequality, a lot of the solutions that are put forward focus on fixing women. These are initiatives that try to help women change, adapt and fit into a world of work that really supports white, middle class, heterosexual, able-bodied men.”

To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th, we wanted to do something special. In this episode, you’ll hear about Michelle King’s journey and some of the challenges she’s experienced as a researcher and advocate for gender equality. Towards the end of the podcast, she’ll also be talking about what each of us can do to put equality into practice at work.

Michelle will be joined by Beatrice Cornacchia, Mastercard’s Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications in Middle East and Africa. Bea has been working at Mastercard for 28 years and has been the creative force behind the company’s brand strategy in 69 markets.
