Hosted an event
My employer is participating in Pride for the first time, and naturally, I had to get involved. 30 brave souls got together for our Rainbow Bakealong, and I'm pretty thrilled with the results! I especially appreciate anyone trusting that I could guide them through a recipe, considering....I don't really use recipes!

Learned a new skill
Took a course
I don't get a lot of opportunities to flex my programming muscles, but it's always a good time! It's important to me to understand the tech we work with and sell, because it helps me better understand my colleagues and customers, so as soon as COVID allowed, I got myself in a robot programming course.

Five days later, my little robot (I call her Action) could move golf balls around, interact with the operator (me), draw various shapes and a bunch of other things. A success!

Took on new responsibility
Learned a new skill
I'm learning to write contacts! With the sudden departure of a valued colleague, we're left with a gap in the organization. Not having anyone proficient at writing and setting up new contracts isn't ideal when service contracts is what you sell, so I'm taking on a new challenge.

From the moment a salesperson makes a sale until the contract is signed and handed over to customer success, they're now my responsibility. I'm really enjoying seeing our business from a new POV and learning a couple of new skills!

Taught at a local High School
Volunteered with a non-profit
"Real World Mathematics" is a Swedish organization where engineers bring math from their work to high schoolers in order to create a greater understanding for the importance of math.

I participate as often as I can, working with students on real-world applications of percentages and answering questions about STEM and my experiences as a woman in the field.

Built a dashboard
When I realized there was no such thing, I started working on a dashboard to compare diversity aspects across ABB Robotics so that HR can identify and focus on diversity challenges. A PowerBI dashboard with relevant KPIs is currently being rolled out amongst managers!
