In today’s society there is a strong demand to move forward to ensure there is always gender parity. The theme of 2018’s International Women’s Day is #PressforProgress which works by encouraging whole communities to be gender inclusive.
Here at Diabetes.co.uk we are doing our bit to #PressforProgress. The ladies of the office certainly don’t go unappreciated, with all of our younger female team members progressing in their careers. We thought we would share a little bit about some of our influential female colleagues and how they have got to where they are today.
Charlie: Chief Operating Officer (COO)
In 2010 Charlie joined Diabetes.co.uk with a background in psychology. The business was in the early stages when Charlie came aboard and over the years Charlie has grown with the business which is demonstrated when she was made COO in 2014. She has since demonstrated the desired skill set to become an influential member of the business through her hard work, determination, organisation and passion for improving people’s health and well-being.
Giv: Head of Design/UI/UX Designer
Having started as an apprentice in 2012, Giv has worked hard to display her breadth of skills and abilities. Giv has taken the ongoing expansion of the company in her stride and has consequently taken on more responsibility. Giv has proceeded to work her way up through the company and now at just 25 years of age, she manages a team of designers, helping to provide our users with top quality products.
Ashlee: Social Media Executive
Ashlee joined Diabetes.co.uk in 2015 whilst completing her Social Media and Digital Marketing Level 3 Diploma in 2016. Since then she has been working on her Digital Marketer Diploma Level 4 and is due to complete her qualification this year. She currently schedules posts and creates images to be communicated through the social media platforms.
Dajana: Project Manager
Dajana joined the business in 2017 as an Assistant Project Manager. She has gained a range of experience by working in different departments whilst being at DCUK. Her primary focus is now business development in the company, which involves managing external clients and governmental affairs. Additionally, she does research for the Low Carb Program and manages the Diabetes.co.uk’s Type 2 Testing Program.
As you can see, gender parity is important to us, therefore women are given equal opportunities within the Diabetes.co.uk workplace. We are always striving to move forward with the times and #PressforProgress.
