Bio: Lotte Davis is the Co-Founder of AG Hair and Founder of Women Leading Change. In 1989, Lotte and her husband John Davis started AG Hair in the basement of their Vancouver home and today, they are the largest manufacturer of professional hair care products in Canada.
In addition to building her company into a well-renowned and respected beauty brand, Lotte has worked tirelessly to find a way to impact gender inequality. Having grown up in the dawn of the apartheid movement in South Africa, she became acutely aware of the legacy of mistreatment and lack of basic human rights. After moving to Canada in 1960, she became aware of a similar lack of opportunity and discrimination against women.
In 2008, she began building schools for girls in some of the poorest regions in Africa. By 2013, this initiative developed into the creation of her own charitable organisation called Women Leading Change, which includes scholarships for girls to secondary school and university, as well as comprehensive mentoring, coacking and trainging programs. Success for Women Leading Change is realised only when these students begin to earn a living, and Lotte is personally invested in each girl to ensure they achieve this goal.
What keeps you motivated for success? I feel as women, we all have an obligation to strive for success every day to pave the way forward towards a more gender equal world, where an equal number of women are represented in C-suite and in political leadership roles. Until we start hearing more from women and implementing their strategies for creating a better world, I think we'll keep seeing more of the same.
Who is a female role model to you? Jacinda Ardern, Greta Thunberg are two women who currently stand out for speaking up and doing bold things to create important change.
Meet Tracey Bazzano Lauretta from EVY PROFESSIONAL!
Bio: I am a hairdresser by trade, owned a salon for 20 years in Melbourne, started education with Goldwell/Bio Ionic and then fell into distribution. After a few years EVY PROFESSIONAL was born, starting with one iron and from there we have expanded the range.
What keeps you motivated for success? Passion to succeed, failing and quitting has never been an option for me - loving what I do and working with amazing people that inspire and motivate me to be the best I can be. I love to empower women to have confidence in themselves, to be able to achieve anything we set out minds to. My dream is to create a world recognised brand amongst the big players. I love to watch my "little empire" continue to grow and nourish my team of super women!
Who is a female role model to you? My best role model is Marie Cocciolone from InSkin for her success of growing and expanding an amazing Australian brand and culture. I can see that success comes from passion and a true care and love for your clients and staff.
