Let's unite to #PressForProgress
Rozlyn Bekker, Janssen UK, Business Unit Director
I have worked at Janssen for 12 years and in that time my career has spanned various geographies from South Africa to the UK where most recently I have held positions as the UK Medical Director and Business Unit Director. These career opportunities, although incredibly fulfilling, have certainly not been easy - as a working mum of two children, maintaining my work-life balance was crucial. It is my belief that gender barriers should never stand in the way of someone achieving their full potential or exploring opportunities.
I am very proud to be the Diversity and Inclusion sponsor for Janssen UK & Ireland. Our mission is to make diversity and inclusion our way of doing business and to build a culture where every employee feels they belong and are comfortable to bring their true-self to work every day.
On International Women’s Day, I want to recognise the hurdles we still need to overcome, such as gender parity, but also to celebrate the significant achievements of women across the globe. #PressForProgress unites us to continue engaging and advancing the diversity agenda within our organisations – today and in the future.
