At Tampnet we have an ambition to build a strong, diverse and inclusive company culture with focus on gender equality. That’s why we have started the project, “Women In Tech” to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for technology positions and leadership in Tampnet.
We think that International Women’s Day 8th of March is the perfect occasion to cast light on our #WomenInTech project and our employees. Read what our Senior Telecom Architect (LoS), Ibeanyi Bermudez has to say about challenging equality:
From my point of view, focus on knowledge and competence (and not gender) is key to find the right solutions at work. My Line-of-Sight (LoS) team has six team members and some are more “senior” than myself and even located in different countries with different cultural backgrounds. So in my team diversity and equality is not only about gender it’s also about culture and about solving our project tasks based on expertise and experience.

“When I looked around, I realized that there were only three women out of 39 students in the classroom. At that moment I understood that the road would not be easy, but as I progressed in my career, I understood that I was in the right place”, Ibeanyi points out. “Today I am happy to see that the number of women in that classroom has increased significantly. And now we have many more women working in technology areas occupying key positions that have led large companies to succeed. There is nothing more rewarding than working with what you are passionate about, so let's leave behind stereotypes and barriers. Women need to overcome their self-limiting beliefs and empower themselves”, Ibeanyi concludes.Ibeanyi plays the piano and records her own cover versions of different songs.
