A message from WDS President Dr. Andrea Rubik
Looking forward, our mission remains steadfast: to foster a change-maker community where unique perspectives, experiences, and values are welcomed and celebrated.
Dear WDS Community, Members, and Friends,
As we approach the end of another year, it's a time for reflection, gratitude, and looking forward to new horizons. We are filled with pride and gratitude for the strides we've made together in changing today's modern workplace so everyone can thrive and be their best selves.
This year has been a testament to the power of investing in change, elevating diversity, advancing careers, and creating equal business opportunities within the digital economy in Switzerland. By charting clear pathways for advancement, delivering upskilling programs and mentorship opportunities, and fostering educational initiatives, we've witnessed a remarkable change and growth in many people's lives.
Looking forward, our mission remains steadfast: to foster a change-maker community where unique perspectives, experiences, and values are welcomed and celebrated. As we set our sights on the upcoming year, let's reaffirm our commitment to these goals, ensuring that every stride is a step toward a more diverse, equitable, and better world.
This year, we've seen incredible growth and achievements among our members. However, the journey toward greater success and recognition is more than just being more assertive or vocal about our accomplishments. It's about fostering networks and friendships, creating a community that champions each other's achievements.
The most profound recognition comes when others acknowledge our contributions. It's in the chorus of voices that echo our successes and the collective advocacy amplifying our worth. This is why building a supportive network, having mentors, and cultivating advocates are essential. They are not just for career advancements but for daily recognition of our achievements.
Remember, your accomplishments need supporters every day, ensuring that your contributions are acknowledged and celebrated even in your absence. This way, when the time comes for you to step up or move forward, your brilliance is already illuminated by the advocacy of your peers.
As we look forward to the new year, let's continue building this community, advocating for each other, elevating our collective presence, and ensuring every member shines brightly. Together, we're not just raising the change level around ourselves but creating a better world.
Here's to a year of growth, support, and remarkable achievements as we build the future we want!
Dr. Andrea Rubik
President of Women in Digital Switzerland
