About the Author and the Book Team

Dr Stéphanie Mitrano, co-founder of Innovation Copilots, is the author of this book. She has sparked and nurtured the gentle transformations of thousands of individuals and corporations to contribute in the creation of a more gender-balanced and compassionate world.

Jennifer Tytgat, in-house designer at Meaningful Design, in Paris, has been a valuable partner for this book-notebook project. She beautifully crafted the whole book from choosing the overall look and feel, to the typography, book interior layout, and cover.

Brandbook.de, based in Frankfurt, is our printing partner who is working by sustainable principles: planting trees, using recycled leather, using resource-saving, climate-neutral production processes, certified paper, water-based mineral (oil-free) inks, and varnishes. The binding is done with adhesives that do not contain solvents.

Yvonne Busisiwe Kgame, Teacher, Inspirational Speaker and Published Author, from South Africa, has been my book mentor and instrumental in getting these twenty-seven stories out on paper into what became “Unmasked, Loved and Empowered” today.
