Inspirational women from the present


1

Jacqueline Friis Mikkelsen

CEO

I’ve been in the modelling business for over 30 years now and have been Chief Executive of Unique Models, one of Copenhagen’s biggest modeling agencies for 14 of them. As a staunch supporter of equal rights for women in business, I also helped set up an ethical charter in collaboration with the Danish Fashion Institute. I see it as as my duty to share my experience and get as many women as possible interested in leadership. Which is why I am very excited about the Eastpak She Wears Tour.

Ane Egebak & Anne-Mette Nørrevangs

Entrepreneurs

We all came from different academic backgrounds before starting Din Nye Ven together. Now we find ourselves in charge of a variety of daily tasks from brewing coffee and pulling beer to public relations, concept development and tax accounting. We love passing on or experience as independent entrepreneurs and are really looking forward to the She Wears Tour.

Anne-Mette Michaelsen

CEO

As CEO of Powerkvinderne, my goal is to inspire women who want to believe in themselves, strengthen their personal impact, fill their life with purpose and be true to themselves. I am currently writing a book about womenomics - the connection between women, market, and economic growth. I leapt at the chance to be a part of the She Wears Tour because I love to dare women to be flawsome: “Totally awesome, but not without flaws"

Gun-Britt Zeller

Hairdresser and business owner

I’ve been in the hairdressing business for over 50 years now, so I guess I have a trick or two to share. These days, I still like to work at my own salon in the heart of Copenhagen as well as manage my own line of quality hair products. I love to share the knowledge and skills I have acquired over the years and conduct regular hairdressing master classes and various shows, lectures and events. Can’t wait for the She Wears Tour to come to Copenhagen!

Sundra Essien

Founder of Isangs

I used to work as a human rights attorney, but nowadays defend human rights via a slightly different approach as the founder of the fair trade and organic shop, Isangs Hair & Body. I like to bring my extensive experience in permaculture design, human rights, and social entrepreneurship to the shop, which itself I a product of my passion for product chemistry and sustainable business.

Irina Torres

Environmental Specialist

I currently work as an Environmental and Chemical Specialist at Maersk Drilling, helping to improve the environmental performance of offshore oil rigs around the world. I’m originally from Siberia in Russia, and went from washing floors in a sandwich bar to launching a successful career, giving birth to a child, and buying a house and car 3 years later. I believe women have an essential role to play in sustainable business and I’m keen to pass on my experiences on the She Wears Tour.
