Elizabeth Owoade, Offshore Delivery Manager

When Elizabeth was younger, she wanted to teach music. However, when she started her studies at university, she quickly realized her growing passion for science.

In one of her computing lectures, Elizabeth's lecturer told the class that the women representation here is a good example of the representation of women working in IT. This really stuck with Elizabeth, and she decided to pursue her career in STEM.

Today, she works as an Offshore Delivery Manager with us. She wants to encourage all women and girls to pursue their dreams even if others would question them. 

Lisa Külpmann, Production Planning and Production Analysis Manager

In Lisa's early stages of her career, she couldn't see her career progressing any further due to a lack of female role models.

She decided to talk to her manager about her situation and see if there could be some prospect in regards to her career.

Soon after the conversation, Lisa was offered a manager position. She encourages all her female colleagues to speak up and ask for opportunities where they can prove themselves.
