Women in web design #BreakTheBias – International Women’s Day 2022

Meet Laura & Charlotte

It’s a shocking statistic to absorb, but only 19% of the tech industry is made up of women. With the theme for #InternationalWomensDay2022 being gender equality, we thought we’d introduce you to two of our key women at inLIFE Design, Laura and Charlotte.

Laura is our Head Developer. She started with inLIFE on a work placement from Staffordshire University in 2015. Following her graduation, we then employed her as a Junior Developer and in 2021 she became our Head Developer at inLIFE.

Laura develops websites from the ground up using HTML, PHP, CSS and back-end databases. She collaborates with the designer to advise on what is possible and sits in meetings with clients to help them understand the best way of achieving their goals as well as teaching them to use their website editing tools when the site is handed over.

Charlotte joined inLIFE from a University placement in 2019. After her graduation, we were delighted to employ her on a full-time basis as our Head Designer. Charlotte designs everything, from website and digital marketing through to print material and most recently, a billboard and bus advertising for Dudley Council as part of a large project inLIFE were working on.

Charlotte’s role is to look at a website and determine the user journey to present the best website possible for a client, their users, and their business.

Charlotte and Laura work together to ensure everything is synchronised from the design concept through to development and delivery of the final project.

A recent survey conducted by PWC revealed that only 3% of females say that a career in technology is their first choice. With only 5% of women in technology holding leadership positions, we’re incredibly proud at inLIFE to be promoting women in technology and taking a step closer to gender inequality in the tech workplace. It’s time to #BreakTheBias.
