Today, as we celebrate International Women's Day, let's talk about breaking barriers and building creative solutions together in the world of technology. At Venn, we're not just about websites and strategies; we're about ensuring we create an environment where everyone feels empowered to contribute their unique perspectives.

Innovation knows no gender, and neither does success. That's why we're thrilled to showcase the incredible women who are making waves in the tech industry right here at Venn, who are the driving force behind our creative solutions and groundbreaking ideas.

You might be surprised to learn that while women comprise only 26% of the tech workforce globally, 40% of Venn employees are women. And it doesn't stop there. In a world where only 34% of promotions in the tech industry went to women last year, Venn saw 46% of its promotions granted to female employees.

But what does inclusivity mean at Venn? It means creating an environment where everyone feels valued and supported, regardless of gender. It means ensuring a culture of collaboration and respect, where ideas are judged on their merit, not the person behind them.

At Venn, we prioritise women's growth. Nationally, just 30% of digital apprenticeship completers are women, but within our programme, an impressive 67% are female. This showcases our commitment to diversity and equality. We're dedicated to continuing this trend, providing more opportunities for women to excel in their careers.

To support this and celebrate International Women's Day 2024's theme of inclusion, we spoke to a few of Venn’s inspirational women about their thoughts on Venn's inclusive culture.

What is inclusivity to you, and how is it reflected at Venn?

“To me, inclusion is knowing that you're an equal and your opinion, values, and expertise are respected as much as anyone else's at the table. Venn has supported me in my role as Head of Search (where SEO is traditionally a male-dominated industry) and allowed me to grow my expertise and help build an SEO product from the ground up. Our Search team has a 50/50 split where half of the team is female and we're showing that women are just as capable at SEO campaigns and our knowledge is just as valuable.” - Sara Kavanagh, Head of Search 

Why would you recommend Venn as a place for a woman to start her career?

“Venn is a collaborative and supportive business and there is a great inclusive environment where women can thrive. New ideas and viewpoints are always welcomed, empowering success and motivation within the team” - Lauren Read, Copywriter

For the women of Venn, inclusivity means knowing that their voices will always be heard, their ideas will always be valued, and their careers will always be supported. Whether through mentorship, return-to-work initiatives, or simply providing a platform to shine, we're committed to helping our female colleagues reach their full potential.

As we celebrate International Women's Day, let's do more than just talk about inclusion; let's actively practice it every day. Together, we can shatter stereotypes and build a brighter future for women in tech.

So here's to the women of Venn—and to all the women who are breaking barriers and building solutions together. Happy International Women's Day!

Join us in our mission to inspire inclusion and celebrate diversity. Together, we can create a tech industry that's as diverse and dynamic as the world we live in. Join Venn and be a part of something exceptional. To learn more about our work culture and life at Venn, visit our careers website.
