Our successful, international event series, the I’mPOSSIBLE conversation powered by Mizani and supported by Pearson, turned four last week and hosted a stellar panel of trailblazing women of colour who have wholly, defined success on their own terms.

Speaking to a packed room, the panellists shared their deepest insights into their life journeys, lessons learned and what keeps them motivated.  The magic that was manifested with women from all walks of life coming together to hear from this dynamic group of women was ‘on fleek’. Ensuring all who came, walked out a bit taller, more focused and more empowered than when they entered.

 

Jessica Osunsami from Mizani UK commented:

Another inspirational I’mPOSSIBLE conversation – I challenge any woman not to feel empowered when filled with a room of intellectual and charismatic professional women. Mizani were proud to continue powering the conversations for a 4th year, we feel the conversations and the women in attendance perfectly embody our values and spirit.

Abu Bundu-Kamara,Director of Diversity and Inclusion at Pearson for EMEA & APAC from Pearson plc said:

Pearson is incredibly proud to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the I’mPOSSIBLE Conversation and our partnership over the past six years.  The I’mPOSSIBLE Conversation recognises and celebrates the remarkable achievements and talent of women of colour.  Each of these individuals has demonstrated great leadership and the ability to find opportunity in uncertainty.  Their success sets a powerful example of what can be achieved.  On behalf of everyone at Pearson, I’d like to congratulate Simone Bresi-Ando and I’mPOSSIBLE team and I look forward to our continued partnership.

 

Simone Bresi-Ando, founder of I’mPOSSIBLE commented:

I planted this seed four years ago that the life stories and successes of women of colour could be exhalted beyond the constant noise of inaccuracy and stereotyping that this group falls foul of. Step by step, I have built a successful, international event series that uncovers women of colour who are role models, inspires the audience and panellists simultaneously as well as creating a sustainable legacy that cannot be rewritten.

I want to thank everyone, that has supported the events with their time, hardwork and dedication to ensuring this platform remains a beacon for global female excellence.

 

Here’s to many more years, celebrating, upholding and uncovering women of colour who are role models!
