Marina Go

Diversity Advocate, Author and Business Leader

Leadership is a privilege, and we should use the platform that leadership provides to advocate for those who do not get the opportunity to be heard. I am driven by the belief that everyone should have equal access to opportunities regardless of their starting point in life.
