What does Limitless mean to you?
“ Powering social enterprise with technology can be a potent agent of change. Through mobile technology, smallholder farmers in Africa can get access to commodity markets, finance and information, which are vital to escaping the poverty trap. I am proud to be part of this revolution. ”
We live in a world of constraints—some are physical, some cultural but they are always personal. Lack of time, fear, stereotypes and self-doubt are just some of its manifestations.
These mindsets limit our human potential to achieve great things in life and hinder experiences that not only enrich ourselves but also benefit society at large.
Limitless celebrates women who have dared to push beyond their own limits and conquer obstacles in their lives.
“ Having moved four countries in the last five years, I experienced first-hand, the lack of community support available for young immigrant women. This motivated me to bring women from different backgrounds together and empower them with resources to help them reintegrate into the workforce, and find a renewed sense of purpose in what they do. ”
The INSEAD Woman:
Pushing the Limits since 1967
In 1967, INSEAD became one of the first business schools to admit women to its MBA programme when it welcomed Hélène Ploix and Solange Perret to the Fontainebleau campus.
To honour this 50-year milestone, the school is also launching iW50 at INSEAD: a celebration in which we honour the women of the school, while reaffirming a commitment to equip them for success at every career stage and in every organisation.
“ I have always been intrigued by how a country’s economy impacts its people and their destinies. This interest motivated me to build a career in emerging markets. Being able to affect their economy by pulling through investment deals, providing right financial advice and connecting businesses and investors globally have been extremely fulfilling. ”
