Head of Global Markets Roadshows
PIPPA DALE | BNP Paribas
The best thing about your career
I love managing a team and getting everyone to work with their strengths and also I enjoy working with a wide range of nationalities and cultures which the modern day workplace enables us to do.
Why you think being out is important
Gay and bi women underestimate their value in the workplace and indeed in the wider economy, standing together – we will start to see and celebrate our value.
How and what was the reaction to you coming out
Being out in my workplace as afforded me the opportunity to travel with work and for the organisations I work with to support me; if I wasn’t out it would be an unnecessary complication. I have also had nothing but a positive experience with my colleagues where we celebrate the good times and bad in our lives (aka gossip with each other) and they know as much about my life as I do theirs and for me that is one of the positive and fun parts of working.
