Women Who Lead – Leading the South Pole Challenge – Eirliani Abdul Rahman

In January 2017, my guest this week, Eirliani Abdul Rahman will be the first Singaporean woman to walk to the South Pole. She will cover over 1100km pulling a 60kg sled full of her equipment and supplies. Listen to her story as we explore the passion that is driving her expedition – child sexual abuse.  As the co-founder and Executive Director of YAKIN (Youths, Adult Survivors & Kin In Need), Eirliani is raising global awareness for a cause very close to her heart, and in doing so, is demonstrating leadership at its best.
