Empowering women to thrive in the workplace - WORK180 & Valeria Ignatieva
January 1, 2021
Valeria Ignatieva is Co-CEO and Co-Founder of WORK180 which was created with a mission “To empower every woman to choose a workplace where they can thrive.” WORK180 connects women with progressive employers by pre-screening companies on the amount of paid parental leave, pay equity, flexible working and much more. Transparency around these policies is driving incredible change; on average, once every three weeks a WORK180 Endorsed Employer improves a policy or benefit. Valeria’s relentless focus on diversity, inclusion, and social impact made this an interesting conversation.

Valeria Ignatieva and Gemma Lloyd co-founded WORK180 after experiencing a working world that was failing women.

This innovatively transparent job board now helps women around the world to confidently apply to workplaces with a proven commitment to diversity, inclusion, and gender equality.

Besides the core of WORK180, we get to explore funding, international expansion, and a truly modern workplace.
