Harriet Minter is a journalist and broadcaster, specialising in female leadership. She founded and edited the Guardian’s Women in Leadership section, which focused on women in the workplace, and now writes for a wide variety of publications on the leadership, women’s rights and the future of work. She is also a columnist for Psychologies magazine and hosts The Badass Women’s Hour on TalkRadio. She’s written for publications including The Times, The Telegraph and the Huffington Post. In 2016 she realised that it wasn’t enough to just tell companies about the changes to working practices, she wanted to help them actually develop. She retrained as a coach and facilitator and now works with everyone from traditional corporates to brand new start-ups on leadership development, diversity and culture change. In the past two years she’s given two TED Talks, the first on the importance of learning to fail and the second on yoga, which have had 10s of thousands of views. Outside of work her passions include high heels and big boats – just not together.
