CSO and Co-founder | Civocracy
Nominated in the Category: Social Hero
Short description of the company
Civocracy is a CivicTech and SmartCities company that is improving the relationship between the government and citizens through collaborative decision making. We have an online platform on which they can collaborate and co-create policies and projects that can be implemented. We currently work with government on both the national and local level, as well as leading think tanks, in four European countries.
How does digitization shape your/her career?
I have always been an entrepreneur, and have loved building companies that centre of developing human relationships. After founding two successful (offline) event companies, digitalisation was the only logical step to amplify my impact and build bigger, more connected, more engaged communities.
What makes you/her a digital female leader?
I now work in both the tech world and government sector - two spaces that are still very male-dominated. But I am combining these two themes with my vision for the power and potential of community. I really believe that putting people at the centre of service design will transform the government/civic tech sector.
What does leadership mean to you/her?
To me, leadership means setting the example: I apply our company values (transparency, respect, inclusivity) to my work on a daily basis, I explore new paths, I listen to new ideas, and I'm not afraid to fail. I also wouldn't be a leader without my team, and you can never forget that - I put my team at the centre of my decisions.
