After being an active member of the Centrica Women’s Network since 2018, Joanne became Co-Chair from September 2020. One of her focuses is on ensuring an intersectional lens is applied to everything the Network does. For International Women’s Day 2020, the Network commissioned articles from diverse female Centrica employees sharing their experiences, whilst the main event featured a panel of women from different ethnic backgrounds. At a joint event with Centrica’s ethnic minority network, Joanne spoke about the importance of being an ally to BAME women. Other efforts Joanne has undertaken include introducing the Google #IAmRemarkable program in 2020, for which she facilitated workshops for over 180 people, as well as co-drafting and championing the 2021 D&I objectives with key targets cascaded as measures through the Technology directorate. Joanne has served as a main stage speaker at both the London Women of Silicon Roundabout and the Panasonic Toughbook Innovation Forum.
