Angelina Ling

She is fluent in 4 languages and embraces cultural diversity, which supports her passion and makes her an integral asset to the ASPL recruitment team.
“I think females are judged more harshly when they take on entrepreneurship, which holds back many women. Often females in leadership positions are criticised as being pushy or bossy. Women need to be vocal in showing each other support and hopefully this will inspire more of us to pursue entrepreneurship.” — Angelina Ling

Tell us a little about yourself?

I started my career as a Recruiter with ASPL Recruitment and Consulting and I’ve been here for almost two years. I’m passionate about recruitment, which is why I decided to pursue a Master’s of Human Resource Management to upscale my knowledge in the HR field.

Who are the women who have inspired you the most in your life?

Michelle Phan, who is a well-known American makeup artist and entrepreneur who started her career as a beauty YouTube personality through her passion by posting creative makeup tutorials.

Any other female leaders you look up to?

Maki Akaida, who is currently in charge of Uniqlo’s Japan operations. She is a powerful business woman and is even tipped to be the next CEO of Uniqlo.

Why do you think it’s important to increase the number of women in business, particularly in leadership roles?

It’s important to increase the number of women in business to promote gender equality in the workplace and encourage other females to pursue business careers..

What do you think contributes to the lack of females taking the plunge in entrepreneurship?

I think females are judged more harshly when they take on entrepreneurship, which holds back many women. Often females in leadership positions are criticised as being pushy or bossy. Women need to be vocal in showing each other support and hopefully this will inspire more of us to pursue entrepreneurship.

What more can be done to support women in male-dominated industries?

An organisational culture that promotes gender equality and diversity is a must for supporting women in male-dominated industries. Without support or encouragement, individuals may never be aware of the existence of the glass ceiling at work.

Jess Munday

Jess is a 32-year-old business owner and mum of two young kids, a 3-year-old boy Jagger and a 1-year-old girl Indiana. Starting a business wasn’t her intention. She graduated in 2012 with a degree in HR and Management and felt she had certainly found her calling, progressing through the ranks of a global fashion retailer, a job which she loved. It was during maternity leave that an opportunity presented itself. Initially a side project, it soon gained more traction than anyone could have predicted!

Friska Wirya

Friska helps large organisations, and the individuals within them more readily accept and thrive through change. She accelerates adoption and build proficiency at scale, having worked for some of the biggest names in mining, engineering and higher ed.

Sonia Gibson

Sonia loves to solve puzzles and naturally gravitate towards numbers and maths. As an entrepreneur in the accounting world, she has made a concerted move to elevate her leadership by tapping into a feminine approach. She helps clients see where conflict between the head and heart impacts decision making – going with one or the other in business means important elements are left behind.

Naomi Seddon

Naomi is an international lawyer that assists companies to go global. She is also an author, presenter and advocate on issues impacting women in the workplace. She is also a director of a number of companies and she is writing a book on women’s health issues and the workplace (Milk and Margaritas) which is going to be released later this year.
