Get To Know Our Team This International Women's Day!

60% of our global leadership team are women. 80% of our staff are women. And 100% of our team are supporting International Women’s Day.

This year, we’re celebrating the 2019 theme of #BalanceforBetter by providing an insight into the women making BNKR better - the ones you chat to every day, the ones who manage our Instagram, and the ones who make our website look so damn lovely.

Take a peek at what makes them tick below.

Next in my Netflix queue: Roma - Alfonso Cuarón.

Last thing I read: An article on the Jordyn x Khloe debacle.

Next in my Netflix queue: I’m not one for series – nothing has ever filled the Gossip Girl void for me. I haven’t been addicted to a series since.

I’m listening to: Shameless. This podcast gets me out of bed every Monday! Do yourself a favour.

My favourite 2019 trend is: Tiny bags (but only for the memes).
