Harriet Minter is the editor of the Guardian’s Women in Leadership section. Previously, she worked as a commissioning editor for a range of sections on the Guardian and also ran the engagement and social media strategy for the Guardian’s Professional Networks.

In this very personal talk, Harriet argues that women need to “proceed until apprehended”, i.e. women need to lose the need to get explicit permission for taking a risky action.
