International Womens Day: Why are there so few female e-commerce managers?

Today, women shop online about as often as men.

Yet most e-commerce managers are men. Research among the 275 largest online retailers and travel companies in the Netherlands shows that only about 16% of the e-commerce managers are women (see: https://lnkd.in/eZmr3bg). This is not in proportion to the customer base of many web shops.

Would it matter if we had more female e-commerce managers or not? How would online shopping look like if we had more female e-commerce managers? The same or different?

Pip Jamieson founder The DotsMy last shout out of #IWD2019 goes to the incredible women at The Dots that make everything possible. Annie, Danni, Donna, Gosia, Joyce, Laura, Nancy, Raquel, Robyn, Sabeena & Sophie – legends the lot of you!

At our Friday team meeting we do THANK YOUS – where everyone on the team thanks another teammate. Today my Head of Engineering gave me goose bumps when he thanked all his female teammates for making The Dots such a magical place to work, saying “my previous companies were very laddish/masculine – but since joining The Dots I’ve never been happier & couldn’t return to those environments again!”

Surely this is what it’s all about; building inclusive teams that make us all happier, more creative and more productive.

I’m so proud to work alongside these incredible women every day – of my 22 teammates; 50% are female! But I’m equally proud of a team that reflects society more broadly; spanning 9 different nationalities, 25% BAME, 13% LGBT+ and beautifully neurodiverse.

This is the future! This is why we do what we do. Happy #IWD2019, all

Happy International Women’s Day everyone!

The position of women has improved over the years but there are still a lot of barriers in the way for women to advance their carreer. I’m speaking with Marian Spier,Founder of the Female Startup Awards and TedXAmsterdamwomen

Joost d’Hooghe

Joost d’Hooghe – I am a strong believer of using positive energy and personal relationships to build lasting commercial partnerships. Applying a 90-10, “getting things done” approach.

My ambition is to build strategic alliances between winning organisations, either in executive commercial roles or as general manager. Working with agile and empowered teams with a focused approach (strategic accounts, push products, application leadership) and goal orientation (KPI’s, dashboards, accountability) resulted in >double digit growth in a stagnated European economy.
