Ayesha Rekhi: Equality is a good thing to do, just and smart thing

Ayesha Rekhi is Canada’s ambassador to the Czech Republic. During her long career as a diplomat, she has faced many situations in a wide range of countries when women were not respected in a way they should. Such experiences led her to lead by example and support other women in their careers in diplomacy.

Canada is a very good example; 50% of its ambassadors being women. Ayesha talked about the journey that preceeded this achievement, creating policies and convincing people to understand that diversity is very important.

At the 13th year of the Equal Pay Day conference Ayesha spoke also about:

  • How women manage changes and how she manages them herself
  • Why is change useful for building our own resilience
  • Why is it important to take care of ourselves in time of changes
