Connecting, inspiring and empowering women to lead the way
For the sixth exchange of Empowering Girls in May 2023, we had the pleasure to welcome #youngtalent Nefertiti Dogani in conversation with WIL Fellow Elizabeth Villa Covarrubias, as a #rolemodel.
Elizabeth has worked at Groupe Rocher, L’Oréal, Rexel and Tarkett, and is currently Global Head of Learning & Development at Edenred, leading the learning strategy and deployment of learning programmes that fuel the managerial ambition of talents within the company.
Nefertiti is 19 years old and is Malawian-Tanzanian. She graduated secondary school in 2021 and will start her Bachelor's in Psychology in September. Her passion lies in mental health care and environmentalism; she aims to someday give back to society through her contribution to these fields.
During their conversation, Elizabeth advised Nefertiti on the importance of on embracing one's uniqueness and diversity and turning it to your advantage and added value.
Here is what Nefertiti told us after her exchange with Elizabeth:
"My exchange with Elizabeth taught me how crucial it is to identify your passion and purpose in life ; highlighted the importance of seeing your differences as strengths instead of weaknesses and above all, instilled in me the aspiration to become the sort of woman who is an inspiration and source of wisdom for young women and girls in my community."
Thank you Nefertiti and Elizabeth for sharing your passion with us!
