Taking on the role of CEO of Fujitsu UK & Ireland
I am very excited to take on the role of CEO of Fujitsu UK & Ireland – one of the world’s largest IT companies. Throughout my career in technology, I have seen the fantastic contribution that women make to this sector, and Fujitsu are a company which recognises the real value of diversity and promotes inclusion at every level.
That said, there is still much more that needs to be done to increase the number of women in IT as a sector, both at entry level and within leadership positions – and for me that starts by promoting the exciting careers available as well as offering mentoring and role models.
Fujitsu have a strong track record of doing these kind of things already, and I will be looking to invest further, whilst helping extend this to the industry as a whole.
