A sneak peek into our chat…

Why do we need more women in mobility?

Everybody uses mobility, everybody flies or drives cars yet such a small proportion of women are designers and contributors to these industries.

What difference can a diverse workforce make?

Both gender balance, and the balance of people from all walks of life allow different conversations to happen and different ideas to come together. A greater mix of people creates the environment where we could produce something completely new and make a really big impact on problems like sustainability.

Why is startup life so amazing?

“I love the fact that there is a huge mix of different disciplines that have come together to produce something that is actually of great value”.

Thanks Joelle — It’s amazing to see how much you love what you do, and how you are driving change in the industry. 🙌
