International Women’s Day with Rebecca Willis
Being from a non-technical background you need to work harder to make sure you have the right information or can access the right information at the right time to help clients create a solution that works best for them. Working across multiple technologies can make this more challenging but also adds variety and keeps things interesting. However, a non-technical background also helps me to ask different questions than other people in the room and see things from a different perspective, which is often useful.
You need a lot of resilience and patience in commercial roles so celebrate the wins when they come. Build a strong network around you of supportive but not necessarily like-minded people. Care about your customers’ success more than your own and your own will come.
It’s a reminder to check in on what we’ve done as a business to improve DE&I initiatives over the last year and make sure we’re always moving the bar forwards.
Every day I continue to be inspired by the incredibly talented women I work with here at 6B.
6B always recognises that there is more that we can do, and Rachael Midgley, our Talent and Wellbeing Manager, is crucial to making this happen. With this focus in mind, we hope to see even more women in senior positions within the business than we already have.
Here at 6B, we’re always on the lookout for fresh talent to bolster our ranks.
