In the report, VV Brown, Board Director of The Ivors Academy said:

“Stand bold, rejecting things that imply we cannot comprehend. Resist patronage from those who hide behind outdated policies suggesting we lack logic, rationality, and brilliance. The call is for diverse thinkers in every realm. Disregard any notion of unworthiness; work diligently, strategise, immerse yourself, and banish self-doubt. Embrace your potential with determination. As women, we are unequivocally deserving and capable of leading, owning, guiding, advising, and providing unique perspectives.”
