Jen Gianoulis, a Consultant in SOCO’s Dynamics 365 team, attended the Summit on SOCO’s behalf to accept the Women in Cloud award.
The event celebrated the achievements of individuals and businesses on their work to support women in the community. This year’s honourees are high-achieving individuals and partners, within the Ingram Micro ecosystem, who have displayed extraordinary levels of innovation, leadership, and advocacy for Women in Cloud in 2021, in addition to excelling in attributes of their winning category.
SOCO has a unique approach of striving to provide a work environment that enables team members to optimise their contribution for clients whilst supporting their own personal choices. This has created a more diverse and inclusive working environment for all. The results include higher than industry standard employment ratios of women in technical teams, and employee Net Promoter scores substantially above the industry benchmark.
SOCO also supports and promotes women in the wider community. The company recently contributed towards the #FemaleFaces4PublicPlaces initiative, which will see a statue celebrating Australian pioneer in STEM, Dr Abigail Allwood, placed at the Brisbane Planetarium.
