Celebrating National Women’s Day
Seeing as most people are enjoying their weekends tomorrow, we’re celebrating National Women’s Day today with a special shout out to a few of our hard-working women working and thriving at Leonherman!:
Oliwia is our youngest team member at Leonherman, she is studying hard towards becoming a chartered accountant. Oliwia is so passionate about her work so much that we sometimes have to remind her to go home at the end of the day. Her commitment to obtaining her qualifications, her work, as well as her additional ability to speak two languages mark Oliwia out as one of our most impressive young team members. This is why we’re celebrating Oliwia on National Women’s Day.
Cheryl is a member of our Practice Administration support and is a proud single mum supporting her son through university as a first-generation scholar. Cheryl has worked at Leonherman for a number of years, starting her career as part of our reception team and then carving a niche for herself in becoming our trusted Operations Support Lead in September 2019. Cheryl’s reliable work ethic and perseverance throughout her career is why we recognise and celebrate her today on National Women’s Day.
Joanna manages multiple disabilities in tandem with the responsibility of her role as Practice Director level, a promotion she more than earned after championing the firm’s HR and People role, as well as her pivotal role in the recent acquisition of the firm. Despite all of her own adversity, Joanna has the upmost patience and understanding with the issues team members come to her with; she has an ‘open door’ policy that makes everyone at the firm feel safe and comfortable. Simply put, Leonherman would not be the great firm that it is without Joanna, which is why we’re celebrating Jo on National Women’s Day.
Grace, our recently promoted Operations Director, is not only a fully qualified accountant, but also boasts a Highly Commended Award from Damar Training in relation to Apprenticeship Mentoring. We also recognise Grace for her instrumental role in the firm’s adapting to using new technologies, training both the team and clients on Xero and other accounting software to ensure they get the most out of it. Grace has set a shining example of what a Leonherman team member can become in the firm, often taking the lead with both our junior team members and with our clients; for all of these reasons we are celebrating Grace on National Women’s Day.
National Women’s Day reminds us of our pride for all of our female team members that contribute so much to what makes our firm successful. We also look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of every single one of our team members in the years to come.
Thank you for all your hard work everyone!
