Take a moment to imagine a world with gender equality. No bias, no stereotypes, no discrimination. This year’s International Women’s Day focuses on encouraging people to overcome gender biases towards women. We are trying to eliminate gender bias by showing our support and encouraging diversity. We’re very fortunate that our team here at Axenic is made up of a number of passionate and experienced women who are all outstanding professionals in their field. In support and recognition of International Women’s Day this year, we would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to them.
As we welcome in 2022 with the team starting back this week, we thought we’d take a look back on 2021 and share our team volunteer work program. One of the Axenic employee benefits we are most proud of is our Employee Volunteer Leave program. This provides the Axenic team with the opportunity to develop their skills and most importantly – give back to our community. In our first blog for 2022, we thought we’d take the opportunity to highlight some of the activities the team has been up to throughout 2021.
Today we are extremely delighted to welcome back Ahmed ElAshmawy who will be (re) joining the Axenic team! Ahmed will be returning to our team as our Consulting Practice Lead.
We’ve recently created a new section on our website for case studies. Our customers were telling us that they wanted to hear more about what we’re doing and how we help different organisations. Of course, due to the nature of our work, a lot of this information is confidential and protecting this is always our top priority. However, we are able to share some information and have developed the first of what we believe will be many case studies in collaboration with our client and partners. Our first one showcases how Axenic worked with Not For Profit organisation the Human Rights Measurement Initiative.
After taking a one-year hiatus, Kiwicon was back in Wellington a couple of weekends ago (16/17 November). Held at the Michael Fowler Centre – the event this year attracted around 2100 “Computer nerds, geeks, and people who think Lego is awesome*” with tickets selling out in three days. The entire team from Axenic managed to get in early and secure tickets to this high demand event.
