Slack Community Manager LMF
“It’s been about two years since I connected with the network and I love how flexible my role is as it compliments my personality and strengths. I love talking to anyone and hosting the weekly catch-ups on zoom was perfect for me as well as sharing and advertising workshops online via social media. I can’t go anywhere
without feeling compelled to tell anyone I feel would benefit from the community to connect!”
Mentoring Programme Manager LMF
“I’ve been very lucky to join LMF right after the end of my university studies.
I’m proud to be part of a community that aims to empower people, educate and help them to build their confidence and provide a community.
Since I have been part of LMF not only do I feel more confident but I have also really acquired more practical skills and experience.”
Operation & Event LMF
“I’ve really enjoyed my time with LMF, I’m continuously learning and meeting new people. I’m developing skills such as public speaking and being able to do something that makes a real impact.
Most of all, I’m so thankful to be working with truly inspiring Women who show me each day just what we can and will achieve."

"The way to approach Gender equality equitability is merely to start figuring it out - and not being afraid to fail on the way. Everything and everyone is a work in progress, so why don't we treat this area the same? What are we so scared of that rather than give things a go, we digress or distract because they're not perfect or promised."
