Celebrating International Women's Day 2021 - Maunika

To celebrate International Women's Day, we asked some of the fantastic women in the QANW team to tell what they #ChooseToChallenge this #IWD2021

Maunika Caines - Risk & Compliance Advisor

How long have you worked at QANW?

4 Months

How do you help contractors/members?

I work behind the scenes to ensure that QANW appropriately manages its risk environment to ensure that we can continue to provide quality products and the best possible claims and customer service to our customers.

What are you choosing to challenge this International Women’s Day:

I challenge that a person’s skin colour or gender doesn’t define their worth.  We do equal the work and should get equal the pay!

Out of work hobbies:

Cooking, travelling (when we can finally get back there!) and chilling with the kids.

Favourite thing about working at QANW:

The people are fantastic! It is a friendly, helpful and inclusive environment.

Woman in business you admire and why:

I believe that everyone's journey deserves respect.  I salute all women pushing through numerous glass ceilings daily, while juggling their personal commitments and responsibilities, to reach their desired goals.

My strength and inspiration, however, comes from a burning desire to create a world where my daughters will never have to work ten times as hard as their male counterparts to receive equal pay and/or opportunities because of their gender or race.
