is Advancing Women in Business and Sport 

Hi, I'm Michelle Redfern

This is what I do and why I do it

Hi, I am Michelle and I am the owner of Advancing Women in Business & Sport, the co-host of global online businesswomen’s network A Career that Soars! the Lead to Soar podcast, host of The Advancing Women in Sport podcast, and the co-founder of CDW (Culturally Diverse Women).

Everything I do is grounded in my mission to create a gender-equal world, particularly in sport and business workplaces. I want my son and daughter, my nieces and nephews to inhabit a world:

  • Where women and girls are valued, respected, and equal;
  • Where men and boys can rid themselves of the shackles of toxic masculinity; and,
  • Where every human can reach their full potential.

I am an unapologetic, passionate feminist and inclusionist, who, because of my white skin and education has privilege and influence. I am determined to harness my privilege, my passion for women’s rights, my business acumen, and my networks to have a positive global impact on society.
