We are two Swedish sisters with global careers, working in the complimentary fields of leadership development and peacebuilding. We are on the board of the family-owned business Welcome Hotel in Stockholm, and we are Yoga Teachers. As natural connectors, we love to bring people together, both in our careers and when working on our passion project Roos&Shine.
With all the momentum around female empowerment, we want to be a positive force, making our contribution to a movement based on equality and inspired female leadership.
