At Lemonade, we’re all about making a positive impact, whether it’s through the software development projects we work on or the initiatives we support. We take our social responsibility very seriously, and always look for ways in which we can benefit our community.
On top of this, we try and improve representation in our industry, and work to actively promote diversity in our workplace. We know diversity in STEM is not always easy to find, and we believe the first step for changing this is to acknowledge it. We want to be part of the solution, so we work hard to build a diverse team where everyone feels welcome and valued.
Solutio is a non-profit organisation in Belgium that coaches students who have trouble reaching their goals through intensive sessions focussing on mind and body.
They have a program for students who are financially challenged, to ensure they don’t miss out. Lemonade is proud to sponsor this amazing organisation.
We do our work with pleasure and professionalism, but as a team we also want to feel that we are contributing part of our efforts towards a better world.
To this end, we support two non-profit organisations that help to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4, to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
#IamRemarkable is an initiative from Google for empowering women and underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond. Our team recently attended an #IamRemarkable workshop to further understand how we can support this initiative.
Collaboratively doing this workshop allowed us to share personal experiences with our colleagues and have a rich discussion that enabled the whole team, whether part of an underrepresented group or not, to better understand the issues and to be part of the change.
Our HR team are always looking for ways to encourage more women in tech. As part of this mission, they attended HR Xperience’s session on Empowering Women In Tech Through HR.
This panel discussion generated a number of ideas which the HR team have been working hard to put into practice with the support of the whole Lemonade team.
