Stop thinking we are crazy just because women wants equality.

One of Constance’s first tasks when she joined FCM was to rebuild the AM team in Hong Kong, through restoring trust and communication with the other departments and getting to know the FCM customers. This multi-faceted role paved the way for her ease of entry into the FCM family as it was the best opportunity to understand and get to know her colleagues, clients and all aspects of the world of business travel. And it was also because of this that Egalitarianism became Constance’s favourite FCTG philosophy as she experienced and saw for herself the equal rights and opportunities accorded to everyone in FCM. Today, this conviction overruns into Constance’s passion in striving for women’s equality, and she believes that the Women’s World Cup will one day, attract as much attention as the Men’s World Cup. So we had to quiz her…

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY DOING IN YOUR ROLE TO SUPPORT WOMEN?

I am a strong advocate of Pink October (on breast cancer). To make sure that colleagues who came back from maternity leave can breastfeed if required, we created a dedicated nursing room in Hong Kong for colleagues who need it.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR 16-YEAR OLD SELF?

Listen to your inner goddess; she knows what to do... You need some chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star (that’s Nietzsche, but also one of my favourite quotes ever). Always learn from mistakes and always remember that women are not objects and most certainly should never be treated as one!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE QUOTE FOR INSPIRING WOMEN?

A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Certainly I have heard this too many times – “you cannot handle it because you are a woman”. One might not be able to handle a situation because of their personality, strengths or weaknesses but it is not and should never be about gender.
