Deborah Baker

Deborah worked with the core Women in Leadership team to create initiatives designed to empower women in the workplace. These include programmes to upskill high potential women, introducing gender-balanced shortlists for all job vacancies, delivery of unconscious bias training, targeting women-only recruitment events to actively diversify the talent pipeline, and offering family friendly policies surrounding care and leave. Deborah also actively champions gender diversity at Sky, by speaking internally about her career journey, challenges she has faced and why she supports the Women in Leadership initiative. She is focused on engaging the leadership team, and making them accountable by regularly reviewing targets and recruitment shortlists so that business areas can be updated.  She has been integral to the development of the Women@Sky network, and the GetIntoTech training programme. Deborah is an active mentor, both internally and externally, and often engages with speaking platforms such as The Women in Media Awards, and in the press.
