International Women’s Day is a global day to celebrate women and female empowerment. And this year, alongside IWD, we #choosetochallenge gender inequality.

Tania Austin

CEO, Owner & Chief Risk Taker

What advice would you give to your younger self?

It would be to go hard, be brutally honest, be inquisitive and live the life you want to live. You only have one life, go hard at it.

What does being a strong woman mean to you?

Being true to yourself and being true to those around you. That for me, is about your inner strength.

Tell us about a female role model who inspired you to be who you are today.

I don’t have any one female role model who’s inspired me to be who I am. I’m inspired by real women everyday… their stories, what they do, what they bring, and how they just overcome every single obstacle. That’s what inspires me.

How do you #choosetochallenge gender inequality?

By being brave and being honest, I choose to be real and I choose to empower women to be amazing in everything that they do.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

I would say – don’t take yourself so seriously. Things are going to be okay just trust your instincts.

What does being a strong woman mean to you?

Being really confident and comfortable with yourself. Sometimes it’s really hard, and sometimes we get discouraged, but it’s about being brave, bold and always remembering to be kind.

Tell us about a female role model who inspired you to be who you are today.

I would have to say my Mum. I come from a migrant family, who worked really hard, and my Mum works so damn hard to give us every opportunity – she inspires me to strive for the best in life and be the best the person I can be.

How do you #choosetochallenge gender inequality?

By being the best me – bold, brave, and even when my voice shakes, strong with who I am. I also want to help shape gender equality for future generations of women – who are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, whoever, just be bold & brave.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Always remember my values, and live by them. Make sure that if I’m not comfortable, speak up and be brave.

What does being a strong woman mean to you?

That you always act with authenticity, honesty, and integrity. Knowing the importance of unity, being inclusive and remembering that you can show compassion and be vulnerable. It’s also about being a consistent and strong role model.

Tell us about a female role model who inspired you to be who you are today.

I’m very lucky to be surrounded by strong women. My mum is an incredible role. I have our amazing fearless leader, Tania Austin, who really helped shape the person I am today. And I’m surrounded by an amazing group of friends, who are strong, independent and inspire me everyday.

How do you #choosetochallenge gender inequality?

By empowering and elevating my team to be strong female role models.
