SPEAKER: I am just starting out in my career. I'm young, I'm ambitious, and I'm keen to learn as much as I can as quickly as I can.

SPEAKER: My team at work is great. We're all different ages so we all have these different perspectives and I think that's what makes it fun. I'm in my mid 20s and I love the diversity.

SPEAKER: I'm in my mid 30s. Quite a few of my fellow team members are older than me. I need the support of my workplace to help me be a more confident manager.
