WOMEN OF BEEKEEPER: MEET ANDRADA

I am originally from Romania and living in Canada, and I am proud to be a citizen of the world, working for a small but mighty global company. I am passionate about traveling, learning about different cultures and understanding what motivates and inspires different people. As Head of Hospitality, I lead Beekeeper’s effort to empower hospitality leaders to drive front-line employee engagement.

Andrada, Head of Hospitality

Do you have a guiding principle, motto, 

or quote you live by?

Be true to yourself.

Who is your role model, who inspires you?

I take inspiration from all around me, I think most people have something that we can learn from.

How do you measure your success?

By the impact it has on our customers, our team, myself and my family. 

What is your proudest moment in your professional career?

When I was 18 I took the decision to go study 12,000 km away from home and my family. Being brave and open to embrace that opportunity has changed the direction of my life and my career.

What personal achievements are you proud of?

My two children and hoping they would grow up to be amazing citizens of the world.

What is your advice to young women in tech?

Diversity in the workplace is not just something that is politically correct but rather a demonstrated value added. Make yourselves heard as you bring a fresh and highly valuable perspective to this industry.

What is the biggest challenge 

you’ve ever faced as a woman in tech?

I am lucky to work for a company that understands the value that women bring in the workplace. In general, women in Tech (and other industries) could benefit from a more flexible set up that allows them to successfully pursue both their personal and professional lives.
