I first met Katherine Maver when I was seated next to her at a corporate event held at Goldman’s Sydney offices. We chatted about our jobs, and Katherine’s recent return to Sydney following years of global trotting as a highly skilled consultant for IBM. We talked at length about various roles and business challenges she faced as a woman in an industry dominated by men. And then to my absolute surprise, she told me she was a trans woman.
To celebrate the diverse experiences of women everywhere on International Women’s Day, Katherine and I sat down together to discuss what has been, so far, a rich and rewarding corporate career.
