So why does International Women’s Day mean so much to Pixel?
Well to answer this, you only have to listen to Cat Smith our co-founding Director talking with passion about the impact and value of the inspiring women who now work across our international team.
When Pixel’s UK office was launched in 1996 and Indian production hub established five years later, the Pune office had no women on board. In 2009 there were two, one being Cat as Director. This represented less than ten per cent of the total staff in our company.
As a proud equal-opportunities employer, ten years later, across both offices, we’ve now reached an impressive 50:50 ratio of women to men working across all aspects of the business from finance, project management, 3D modelling, web design to digital marketing.
With the gender equality gap still a significant challenge most prominently in the Indian workforce today, Pixel’s status quo is a real achievement and something we’re all extremely proud to share. Maybe something we can talk more about in the future?
