International Women’s Day: A Conversation with Four Female Colleagues

BenevolentAI Women speaking about equality

To celebrate International Women’s Day we hosted a fireside chat in London with four of our inspiring female colleagues to learn more about their experiences, successes and the barriers or challenges they’ve faced as a woman in a largely male dominated industry.

What is the biggest challenge you had to face in your career so far?

Do you feel the possibility of having children has ever hindered you or has been held against you?

Have you done a university degree whilst having a family (young children at home)?

It’s fairly common for people to accidentally use ‘he’ when referring to an abstract ‘traditionally male’ role such as an engineer or team lead. do you feel this language perpetuates stereotypes and if so, how can we change things?

Do you ever feel undermined by positive discrimination?(where companies actively try to recruit you because you are a woman, rather than be cause you are the best for the role).

What are some of the ways you’ve benefited from having advocates in advancing your career?

What piece of advice would you give to build a more gender equal world?
