How do you get to the top in an industry historically dominated by men?


Hanneke Smits is the Global Head of Investment Management at BNY Mellon, a leading figure in finance and advocate for diversifying the workplace. In this episode she and Georgie unpick her journey to the top, and the pivotal decisions that determined her career.
