International Women’s Day Series: Becky Lee, Regional Workplace Manager at The Trade Desk
Posted April 17, 2024, 8:29 am

Becky Lee, Regional Workplace Manager at The Trade Desk, firmly believes that embracing diversity delivers innovation and drives success. With a career marked by mentorship, advocacy, and personal dedication, Lee shares her insights on how organisations can cultivate inclusive environments for everyone’s benefit.

 

Lee’s journey towards promoting gender equality began with the guidance of supportive mentors who invested in her development. “Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to have great managers who invested their time and expertise in guiding me,” she reflects. These investments not only accelerated Lee’s own progress but also instilled in her a commitment to paying it forward. “I’ve been empowered to support and advocate for other women in the workplace,” she adds.

 

One key aspect of fostering gender equality, according to Lee, is addressing unconscious bias. “Companies should continuously educate employees on unconscious bias and implement strategies to mitigate its impact,” she says. By creating awareness and providing tools to challenge biases, organizations can create a more inclusive workplace where individuals are evaluated based on their skills and contributions rather than gender stereotypes.

 

“By consistently delivering results and earning the respect of my colleagues, I was able to overcome stereotypes and barriers,” she shares.

 

At The Trade Desk, Lee actively contributes to building a diverse and inclusive workplace. Through initiatives such as mentorship programs, diversity training, and inclusive hiring practices, the company is committed to fostering an environment where all employees feel valued and supported. “Diversity of thought, skills, and perspectives enhances productivity and creates a more dynamic work environment,” Lee affirms.

 

Looking ahead, Lee envisions a future where gender equality is not just an aspiration but a reality. “It’s about creating a level playing field where everyone has equal opportunities to succeed.”
