International Women's Day 2022

Today is international Women’s Day 2022 and despite K|E primarily benefitting men, we would be far less effective without the women who work so hard to shape what we do.

On this day, we want to celebrate the achievements of the women at K|E, past and present and thank them for making sure our service users receive the best outcomes possible.

Loraine – Has transformed our financial processes, improving transparency and is making sure we make the most of our resources. Her work is always valued and appreciated and our Service Users really enjoy spending time with her (and her dog poppy!).

Kate – Has recently left her position as Service Manager to work with a different organisation but we still appreciate all of her hard work here at Key Enterprises, she helped shape the service at K|E into what it is today and we’ll always be thankful for that! Good luck in your new role, Kate!

Maggie and Liz – Throughout the pandemic, our trustees Maggie and Liz have supported Key Enterprises through a number of challenges. We never take for granted their expertise, commitment and passion for ensuring that Key Enterprises is a success. They help keep us accountable and ensure that the decision-making process goes as smoothly as possible.

Finally, introducing Catherine as our new Activities co-ordinator. Catherine has a broad range of skills from teaching students with special needs to her excellent musical knowledge. Her skills have really helped her settle into the role. We all are proudly welcoming her to the Key Enterprises team!

The theme for this year’s IWD is “break the bias” which is about taking those steps to avoid behaviour that stereotypes women. This includes breaking the bias in our communities, workplaces and friendship groups. We strive to make Key Enterprises an inclusive space for all and we have a commitment to call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping whenever we see it.
