March 7, 2024

On March 8, we join a worldwide celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD). It’s not just a date; it’s a day to appreciate the amazing achievements of women and call for fairness between genders. At Virtuoso, we take this time to highlight the story of Lara Ogundipe – an Accounts/Procurement Administrator on our team – as we honour the impressive progress of women in the tech industry.

Lara Ogundipe’s Journey

Originally from Nigeria, Lara came to London six years ago with a passion for finance and a desire for professional satisfaction. She found her way into the dynamic world of technology, a field she describes as offering “lots of opportunities, flexibility, and a chance to contribute to global innovation.”

After finishing her studies at the University of Kent, Lara joined Virtuoso, a company she had been eyeing for its innovation and reputation as a leading IT partner using advanced technology.

“I always wanted to be part of Virtuoso because it’s an innovative company using cutting-edge tech. That was my goal,” Lara enthusiastically shares.

Over the past two years, Lara has been a valuable member of Virtuoso, bringing her expertise to procurement and finance. What does she enjoy most about Virtuoso? It’s the people, the culture, and the continuous opportunities to learn.

“The company culture is 10 out of 10, not to mention all the great company perks! I love working with a diverse range of people on a global scale. I can be locked in a room with anyone at Virtuoso and would be able to have fun and still get the work done,” Lara emphasises.”

Lara’s Impact

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, Lara’s story is an inspiration for women thinking about a career in the tech industry. The tech world is changing fast, and women like Lara are leading this transformative wave. The importance of women in tech cannot be overstated.

Having more women in tech not only closes the gender gap but also guides younger generations entering the tech world. Lara’s journey proves that women can excel in various roles within the tech industry, contributing significantly to innovation, growth, and economic development.

Virtuoso’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Recognising the crucial role of diversity and gender equality in the tech field, Virtuoso actively supports initiatives promoting inclusivity. As a company deeply committed to nurturing talent, we are always looking for individuals like Lara, bringing diverse perspectives and skills to our team.

If you are thinking about a career in tech and want to be part of a community valuing and fostering talent, Virtuoso welcomes you. Join us as we continue to support diversity, empower women, and shape a future where equality and innovation go hand in hand.

Happy International Women’s Day from Virtuoso!
