Celebrating Female Creators With Elizabeth Moran
What challenges have you faced as a woman within your career?
Who is your female role model?
I think my biggest female role model would have to be my mammy, I know that’s going to be a typical Irish girl answer but I look up to her so much, she has always been a career woman, and so driven, she has always wanted to help people but also has a sharp tongue and is never afraid to stand up for herself and the things she believes in. I think the juxtaposition of the softness and hardness I see in her is an incredible quality and it’s something I try to emulate in myself as I can be a bit of a walkover. I think I’m more inspired by everyday females like my friends, family, clients and colleagues. I’m constantly in awe of the amazing things all the females around me achieve and endure on a daily basis.
What advice would you give to future generations?
Ignore any stereotypes or glass ceilings that are imposed on you. Try and make a career out of something you genuinely love doing and empower other females as you grow. There is plenty of room for everyone no matter your industry, another woman’s success is not detrimental to yours. Try to become allies with your competition and support each other, you probably have more in common than you think.
