“For me feminist leadership is leadership that allows for equal access to opportunity for both men and women. At Resonate the way we define leadership is being proactive in the face of a challenge. And what that means is that being a leader doesn’t mean you have a high-ranking position in your organization, your company or community, or that you have a great title. It’s more about your ability to see something that is wrong (…) and doing something about it”.Norette Turimuci, July 2019
