This Wednesday, I went to my first 40under40 alumni event, and was again reminded how lucky I am to be living in WA, having moved to Western Australia 11 years ago (this month!) from Canada.
I met Dr Andrew Lu OAM (a 2017 winner) who is doing important work to increase diversity in the legal profession. And I met Kim Tran (who won in 2016 and was also the Telstra Young Business Woman of the year), a fellow kickass woman who wears so many hats, including running Slate, a dog cafe that helps get rescue dogs adopted.
I think we sometimes could do better at celebrating the amazing things and people we have here in WA, so I would encourage you to nominate someone who inspires you for the 2019 40under40, or better yet, nominate yourself!
As for me, I will use this amazing opportunity to help get the word out about my new endeavour to help young people prepare for the future of work: Future Human Academy. I’ll be launching a pilot in Toronto this June, and then bringing it back to Australia. If you’d like to be notified when we launch in your city, there’s a signup here.
