Christina Sharkey

Commercial Counselor U.S. Embassy Prague


With a career that has spanned four continents focused on business relations, I have a true passion for promoting American-style entrepreneurship – a love that was sparked by living for 3 years in America’s heart of innovation: San Francisco, CA.

What would help to make women’s VOICE in society to be moreheard?

We need more men to be allies and make space for women, sponsor women, and acknowledge and value our voices.

What inspired me the most last year?

Having an opportunity to vote for an amazing woman of color as the American Vice President! And then of course having her win!

Sources of inspiration:

Though perhaps dated, and sometimes controversial, Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg was extremely motivational for me when it first came out, and still rings true. I’m also attracted to theme of authentic leadership and research on leadership by Brene Brown. Currently reading her book Dare to Lead. Check out her original Ted Talk and try not to be inspired!

What I would like to read about myself:

Christina has created a legacy of inspiring business leaders across the globe to reach for more.
