Patrizia Laeri

1. What is the best advice ever received?

“The world belongs to the brave.” Even if courage causes resistance, it is exactly what will take you further. I have also taken another advice to heart: “Take care- and then others will also take care of you”.

2. What gets you out of bed every morning?

My curiosity, my urge to get to the bottom of things and my dream to make the world a better place for women.

3. What are your next milestones?

Go global. We would like to bring the concept of Edit-a-thon closer to other international media houses and draw attention to the problem of gender content gap in the digital world. The foundation stone has been laid. We are supplementing the world’s most important information platform, Wikipedia, with women’s biographies. This time we are already working with satellite teams in Washington, Ontario, London, Berlin, Barcelona, Moscow, Johannesburg and Buenos Aires.

4. What is your best analog moment?

Looking people in the eyes.
