Episode 8 #BreakingBarriers

Come and join us as we catch up with Alice Davis, a kick a*ss engineer turned project manager who talks about how she is breaking down barriers in a male-dominated industry. Listen to her journey and how she is navigating through life using her intelligence, humour and most of all determination to beat the status quo.

We discuss some staggering facts surrounding women in the workplace and the innovative impact that diversity can bring.

With June being Pride Month, we will also share what we are doing to support our LGBTQ plus community and how you can get involved too.

P.S Do you think Rob can finally win the quiz?

Carmel’s love affair with communications started 15 years ago with her first job. Since then, her passion has extended to internal and external communications, and with it some might say, an almost unhealthy obsession with project planning. She is in her fourth year at Schneider and when she’s not at her desk, Carmel loves to make jewelry, hang out with her husband and son and dream about their next holiday.
