I’m really proud of the Women in Technology community network at Vodafone, a platform we’ve created to represent all the fabulous women here. We’re growing and learning so much every day, and it’s a real hive of activity where we network, share ideas and all feel empowered to achieve even more.
We’ve welcomed men to the community as well, whose allyship and advocacy are so important in our quest for gender equity. I am so happy to have established such a diverse and inclusive global committee, whose members are working together to break down the barriers women face in tech.
As the network Chair, last month I hosted a live event, Follow HERe, at which senior female leaders shared their personal career journeys. It was a window into the challenges they have met and overcome, and a real inspiration to us all to forge ahead in our careers.
Our network’s mission statement is “We will support, encourage and empower all women in tech to be incredible #VisibleTechWomen”. I’ve invited some of our members to share their insights into how we’re working toward that mission, below.
