Phamotse's story

A Journey of acceptance

He grew up thinking he wouldn’t be accepted for who he was. Or who he loved. He had to challenge himself to have the courage to always be himself. Thankfully, he didn’t have to do this alone. He had family and friends who supported him. A company that welcomed him. And colleagues that accepted him.

Lucie's story

A Balanced work life
Lucie is a data scientist, a particle physicist, a team leader, horse rider, mother and wife. Finding the balance between all of this meant leaving a life of academia behind. Moving her analytical mind from research databases to technology datasets. Spending more time with her family and less time in her notes. Fortunately for Lucie, she works in a country, city and company that give her the freedom to do this.

Chalom's story

Long distance thinking
Chalom is a runner. Morning after morning, mile after mile, he hits the road. But this isn’t jogging. This is ultra marathon running. It gives him time to reflect on the past and focus on the future. To remember his father and think about his son.
