Ursula was born in Finland and grew up with gender parity not experienced in many other countries. This continued during her time at Neste Oil, a Finnish National Oil Company where women play an equal role in driving value. Those experiences made Ursula passionate about pushing for the same gender parity in Canada’s wealth industry.
