With my M.A. in Applied Women’s Studies, I have dedicated my career to advancing women leaders and achieving gender equality. As countless studies by McKinsey and Catalyst demonstrate, companies and countries benefit from having more diverse leaders at the table. I wholeheartedly believe empowering women leaders and those from other underrepresented communities is the best way to change the world.
After spending over a decade working in the nonprofit sector and finally transitioning into tech, I wanted to make sure that I worked for a company that really cared about gender equality. I am happy to say I found that in Ericsson. Years ago, I saw Ericsson as a prominent sponsor at the Watermark Conference for Women. Today, I am excited to be a Talent Acquisition, Global Diversity Lead, and help our company recruit diverse talent and continue to be a leader in workplace inclusion.
I’m proud that Ericsson externally collaborates with nonprofits and other partner organizations such as Watermark, the Anita Borg Institute, TechWomen, among many others. Recently, we’ve also partnered with UPWARD to support senior-level women leaders, as well as Lesbians Who Tech to support all types of women leaders on their journeys. By working together with these groups, we are actively supporting the pipeline of women leaders.
Have you noticed how often our company regularly celebrates women leaders via our channels? I’m also happy to regularly connect with women leaders on our Silicon Valley campus through our Women in Leadership (WIL) group. I’m inspired to work with our female leaders and executives, who are strong role models.
I’m open to new ideas on how we can attract diverse talent and be an inclusive workplace. Please feel free to reach out to me and share your thoughts. Each of you has valuable insight that can help us move forward.
Happy International Women’s Day! Together, we can all work together to recognize the value women bring to society.
