We truly enjoy getting to know the participants in our Women2Watch program – they are some of the hardest workers and most innovative people we’ve met. In order to show these women how much we admire them and their work, we’ll be highlighting a different woman every month with an in-depth interview.
This month we are excited to introduce the founder and CEO of ettitude, an Australian company (with an environmental conscience) that offers bamboo sheets and sleepwear. Meet Phoebe Yu, an entrepreneur, business leader, sustainable thinker – and one of our Women2Watch.

According to University of Oxford’s Platform Sourcing report, talent is now the single most important competitive differentiator for organizations of all sizes. Organizations are forced to adapt or lose talent to competitors who are willing to allow employees to be judged on potential rather than silo-ed experience. Those who can’t find flexible and exciting opportunity as an FTE have been turning to more flexible opportunities like gig work and temporary jobs. Work is changing and the desire for flexibility is increasing, now all we need to do is keep up. Easy, right?
