Breaking Boundaries: The Power of Diversity
9 July 2015
This week, I would like to share two articles which have caught my attention. The first is the inspirational story of Teriano Lesancha, a young Maasai woman, who defied the social expectations and limitations of being a woman in a traditional Kenyan village and proved that diversity and inclusion are better for business and success, particularly where outdated attitudes impede progress.
From an early age Teriano strived at school and her success drove her to challenge the social norm and pursue further education. In a society where primary school education is a privilege and 99% of women do not receive an education at all, Teriano exceeded all expectations and aspirations to become the first person in her village to attend university.
