Sofia Skrypnyk – Head of Equity, Inclusion & Human Rights, C&A (Global Retailer)

Sathya is a highly skilled leader and educator in the DEI space. I worked with Sathya to develop and deliver an in person workshop and panel discussion. I found her to be an incredibly engaging speaker and facilitator who was able to navigate inclusion and intersectional topics.

She demonstrated an ability to command the room at the same time as providing an open and safe space to enable our delegates to be curious and learn about the topics discussed. I hope to be able to work with her again in the near future.
