Servane Mouazan

I love helping women social innovators to be more influential and better connected. I have founded Oguntê and the ImpactWomen Network, to prove that women can solve pressing social & environmental issues and create commercial opportunities at the same time, when given more skills and space to do so. Being part of an ecosystem where everybody is included, can contribute and support others, is the highlight and the mission of our organisation. When I don't run Ogunte, I help people understand and experience Conscious Innovation, by putting them at the heart of change, and co-designing experiences that transform people's worlds.

My drive is about supporting, connecting and promoting women who work in social enterprises, networks and campaigns, and contribute to making the world a better and more equitable place. My work spans across sectors, from Europe to South America, and I am proud to have led pieces of work that have directly impacted over 300,000 individuals and organisations. I am part of the British Council Society Advisory Group, a member of the Women in Social Finance group, an RSA fellow, an advisor on the Match International Women's Fund (Canada) and a contributor of the WeStart research to map and explore women's social entrepreneurship in 12 European countries.
