To continue this year’s International Women’s Day discussion and topic of #BreakingtheBias we said Hej to some of the pioneering women in our product design team and discussed their careers here at the LEGO Group. From their role highlights to the best advice, these women have shared what it’s like to work here, and their journeys to the LEGO Group.
Our host, Fenella Charity, Design Director caught up with some of our talented design colleagues to learn more about their roles, experiences, and some of the awesome products they’ve helped develop and bring to life. Our Head of Diversity and Inclusion, Cecilia Weckstrom, and our Vice President of Design, Matthew Ashton shared their advice on careers at the LEGO Group and how we can continue #BreakingtheBias.
Here are some of our favourite moments from the discussion:
Antica, Model Designer 👋
Ellen, Senior Designer 👋
Andrea, Senior Designer 👋
Raquel, Concept Lead and Design Manager 👋
Cristina, Graphic Designer 👋
The event was exciting and filled with lots of insights and tips for those wanting to develop a career in product design here at the LEGO Group. We saw an amazing turnout from our attendees, with a lot of inspired minds sharing their thoughts.
Here are just a few of the comments captured during the event;
‘I have noticed that many people stay at the LEGO Group for a very long time. This speaks volumes about the way in which the company cares for their employees.’
‘I think I speak for everyone when I say this session has been so insightful! I feel so much more confident as a woman in the product design field, considering everywhere I have applied is very male-dominated and intimidating’
