This International Women’s Day we wanted to keep the conversation going on how we can help to support, uplift and celebrate our awesome women Behind the Bricks at the LEGO Group. Through March we kept the conversation going by hosting a series of events to celebrate the stories of our inspirational women and discuss topical issues.
For our first event we were joined by women in our Digital Technology team and discussed what the International Women’s Day theme of ‘Choose to Challenge’ means to them, and how they got to where they are. Here were a few of our standout moments:
Andrea Løvemærke - Prototype Developer, Billund
Lara Llamas - Blanco Senior Solutions Architect, Billund
Nupur Grover - Senior Application Engineer, London
Nicole Yip - Engineering Manager, London
Back in Australia when I first entered the IT field, everyone I worked with was male. They were great, and I personally have had very positive experiences. I found that the advice and mentoring I was receiving was all resonating with me, and it encouraged my curiosity, opening my eyes to much more in IT. I think the main thing for me is, no matter what gender your colleagues are, making sure everyone has the same opportunities, and these are shared across your own networks and theirs. That is the best thing you can do for someone else’s development, and receive as an Engineer.
At the LEGO Group, we believe that our people make us awesome. That’s why we’re always finding new ways to help support, elevate and encourage our employees. Discover what you can bring here.
