Diversity and Inclusion
Tilly was an excellent and inspiring speaker, and all the audience, especially the girls that attended our event "Imbatibles y Humanas", on resilience and overcoming difficulties in life, were deeply touched by her experience and trajectory, and by the way, she exposed it. Our goal as a Foundation is to encourage girls to aim high, broadening the scope of endless opportunities that are available to them, and to fight the fixed gender stereotypes that still limit the ambitions of young girls, by connecting them with amazing female role models. Tilly was an excellent example to transmit this message. All the impressions that the audience took from our event were positive and enthusiastic. I strongly recommend Tilly for any event.
