According to Davis, women of colour have an innate warrior spirit that makes them inherently effective at leading and at winning.

She said strength, courage, intelligence and analytical ability are hallmarks of any great leader, adding that a warrior spirit goes beyond that though.

Davis said: “We possess a level of empathy for people in general with a higher level of sensitivity towards women and minorities.

"Oftentimes, it’s a skill set that unfortunately some men and non-minorities do not possess. They simply are socialised differently. I believe in order to lead people effectively you must be able to understand them, or at least want to."
