Today, on International Women’s Day, Jumio launches the Jumio Women’s International Network (JWIN), the company’s first official internal organization dedicated to positively influence women’s development and workplace culture. JWIN’s mission is to implement the core ideas of integrity, diversity, empowerment, inclusiveness, accountability and leading innovation across Jumio’s international network of female professionals. The organization will host quarterly internal events including team-building activities, professional training, cultural topic discussions, guest speakers and executive lunch and learns.
“Having this forum for women to share ideas and support each other is an important step for Jumio,” said Amy Treadwell, Jumio Global Vice President of People and Culture. “We recognize that technology is a predominantly male field, and believe it is important for the future of technology to include, and to serve, people with diverse backgrounds. We’re putting actions behind our beliefs through a number of initiatives that support women’s professional development. The tech industry still has a long way to go when it comes to gender diversity, but this is a start for Jumio and we are excited to build upon this program.”
The launch of JWIN highlights Jumio’s goal to champion diversity and gender equality in the workplace. In addition to supporting the development of women in a wide range of roles throughout the company, Jumio is placing a special focus on expanding the role of women in leadership, with the understanding that a more diverse leadership team will lead to better decision-making and an overall more collaborative and productive corporate culture.
Jumio recently promoted Ervinna Lim to Vice President, Global Customer Success. Lim’s focus will include the launch of Jumio’s services to new markets, such as Latin America, and building out local technical teams worldwide.
In addition to Lim, three other women throughout the organization have been promoted to management roles within the past three months. Jumio sees the trend continuing.
“Female employees, both in senior leadership roles and throughout the organization, help strengthen Jumio. This speaks to the diversity and empowerment IDEAL values that we stand for every day,” said Robert Prigge, Jumio President. “I am thrilled to be the executive sponsor of the Jumio Women’s International Network to increase the visibility and highlight the contributions of Jumio’s growing ranks of women in leadership.”
