In this episode we’re joined by Jane Finette who is an author, a leadership expert and the Founder and Executive Director of The Coaching Fellowship, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to the development of young women leaders in social change.

Prior to this she was a Big Tech executive at Mozilla and eBay who has dedicated her life to achieving equality for women — empowering them to create impact across the world.

Jane’s passion, expertise, and two decades of experience is anchored at the intersection of technology and human potential. At her core, she empowers individuals and communities to solve the world's largest, most persistent, and perennial problems.

Jane is the author of the book ‘Unlocked — How Empowered Women Empower Women’, a referendum on women's inequality and a toolkit for levelling the playing field for women and girls. It’s part inspiration, part practical guide.

‘Unlocked’ was written to encourage and empower women to take action into their own hands, and to reach gender equality in our lifetime.


We spent a lot of time discussing authentic leadership and how we can learn from others whilst being true to who we are and what we stand for.

We went back to her time at Mozilla and looked at creating a culture, empowering and leading people when they don’t actually work for you and as you would expect, we explored her mission to level the playing field for women in the world of work.
