#IWD19 ‘I don’t want to live in a world that is dominated and dictated by men. And It would be stupid to forget 50% of the global workforce that can contribute,’ DSM CEO Feike Sijbesma #internationalwomensday2019 #WomenInScience

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: 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
