Developing the AstraZeneca 'Women in Tech' Series
ExcellenceInTA • 10m
In 2020, in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, I created the AstraZeneca Women in Tech Series – a video series where I (as the host) interview women in tech across our global business from all levels and seniority, across multiple disciplines and across all geographies – from Mexico to India, Canada to China. The interviews focus around educating the audience on the breadth of opportunities across the technology industry – in an effort to dispel the common myths and help change the narrative – whilst covering aspects of the guests early career aspirations, journey and challenges, in an effort to allow the audience (and specifically women) to connect on an emotional level and to instil belief that they can too emulate the careers of those showcased and breakdown invisible barriers to doing so.
The series has now been recognised internally at many local, global and senior levels and equally from an external perspective, I have since been invited to talk at many events (including a global women in tech event in November) around the topic of Women in Tech and D&I – something which quite honestly would have been completely out of my comfort zone and toolkit 18 months ago.
