DigiPippi welcomes two new faces in the administration
It's no secret that things are going really strong at the moment and that the work pressure has been extra high for the last several months. It is therefore with great pleasure that we can welcome two new employees in our administration.
Amanda Pihl - Student Assistant
Karina Conradsen, Fundraiser and Diversity Consultant
Camilla Ley Valentin, COO i firmaet Queue-IT, der leverer systemer til at stå i virtuelle køer hos f.eks. SKAT og Billetlugen, har været en synlig og aktiv rollemodel samt talsperson for ligestilling i tech-industrien og iværksætteri gennem mange år.
“Jeg sagde ja til at blive DigiPippi Ambassadør af flere årsager. Synliggørelsen af kvinder i ledelsespositioner i IT-branchen er med til at bryde det glasloft, som kvinder møder når de forsøger at avancere. Jeg ønsker at vise kvinder, at det er muligt at være både IT-iværksætter, leder og kvinde. Både i egen virksomhed men også generelt. Samtidig er jeg mor til to døtre, som gerne skulle vokse op og have mulighed for at blive hvad end de ønsker.
DigiPippis work to make technology accessible to girls at eye level, is an effort that makes a difference. There is much talk that something must be done. DigiPippi act and when to process many different types of girls. It is important to show that it does not require that one is male or a special type that could use and create technology.”
We are DigiPippi super proud of these super cool women want to rally around our work, and we look forward to a future good cooperation with them.
Sahra-Josephine Hjorth: For future leaders
"I'm DigiPippi ambassador because I support the engaging ways DigiPippi method inspires young girls. DigiPippi working to make STEM subjects accessible and exciting for the next generation of women leaders. I would like to help, especially when I had a hard time finding female role models as a child.
If we are to solve the world's biggest problems such as climate change, poverty and lack of access to education, we need to get better at catching minorities and actively incorporating more diverse perspectives in our businesses. DigiPippis work is very important as it can help us get more women in STEM and as leaders of STEM companies. "
