Daniela Marino

As a scientist, a young entrepreneur and a mother, Daniela’s mission is to foster healthy and sustainable growth of both her family and her business – she believes with creativity, sacrifice, and passion, marvelous things can be achieved. Despite wanting to be a researcher since she was 7 years old, her curiosity, determination and risk tolerance made her leave her scientific career to build a life science start-up, CUTISS AG, with the vision to bring personalized skin tissue therapy to help patients with skin defects.

Elisa Pistis

Elisa is an Italian actress and professional author. Despite her petite figure, when she’s performing the stage never feels empty: her energy and passion arrive straight to the audience, which thus embraces an immersive journey through her voice and gestures. She firmly believes that the only way to not let masterpieces die is re-interpreting them without being afraid of bringing in our own point of view: if not, the performances would be mere copies and slowly fade away.

Ruth Wood

Ruth is on a constant discovery process. She values adaptability and reinvention and doesn’t shy away from a challenge. Her passion for open and meaningful connections leads her to ask the difficult questions in her career and her hobbies. She is a Product Marketing Manager at Beekeeper, a tech company empowering frontline workforces to work better together.

Wies Bratby

With a background as a top lawyer and HR Director, it is perhaps no wonder that Wies Bratby ended up coaching women across the world to negotiate their worth. On a mission to end the gender wage gap globally, she focuses on increasing women’s confidence and competence to have these career- and business defining conversations at the right level, so both sides win and the relationship between them improves.

Zita Küng

As a broad experienced feminist and lawyer, Zita Küng supports leaders in administration, enterprises and organisations in getting gender and diversity issues into action. The results are pleasing to everyone. In the political field, she uses all the techniques she has learned since the 1970s: research and educational projects, events, activism. For the year 2021, when Switzerland will celebrate (only) 50 years of political rights for women, she started the campaign to invite women and men to contribute their analysis, reflection, and view on the past, the present, and on the future democracy.
