006: Olga Shoraka – Helping women to succeed

Quote from Olga Shoraka on the Parentpreneur Accelerator Podcast

In this episode, I interview Olga Shoraka, Google Campus London Ambassador for Women@Campus community.

Previously, Olga spent 8 years in financial services in New York focusing on equities in the technology sector. She is currently a full time MBA student at London Business School.

Olga has been a long-time advocate for closing a gender achievement gap, having served in executive roles on multiple boards, and is also a parent.

I’m passionate about supporting more equal opportunities and representation in the home and at work, so I was delighted to talk to Olga about the challenges women face when setting up businesses, and how they can overcome these.
