Lora’s a Leading Lady

Business Systems Lead, Lora Barclay, has been selected from over 30 applicants to be a new member of the Scottish Women in Business committee after a vote of all organisation members.


Business Systems Lead

Scottish Women in Business (SWiB) exists to offer inclusive spaces for women to communicate, connect and collaborate with other professionals and is continuing to grow and develop as a leading network in Scotland.

The committee enables the organisation to capitalise on the growth of the network and support its 100+ members.

“I’m honoured to be elected by my peers for this position,” said Lora. “I have been passionate about making sure girls and women thrive within the business world, and continue to overcome gender inequality. Being part of SWIB, bringing women together to inspire and advise each other feels like the next step in my personal campaign; joining a group of individuals who are all driving the same agenda.”

Lora, who is also co-chair of her childrens’ school Parent Council and volunteer board member for Crossroads South Ayrshire, will support the organisation’s IT and digital strategy – streamlining processes and outreach, as well as organising and attending events to share its key goals and objectives.

Newly-appointed President, Sarah Heaney of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, said: “I dream of a world where organisations like SWIB are no longer needed. That equity, diversity and inclusion just happen because it is the right thing to do but, in a week, where Claudia Goldin is awarded the Nobel Economics Prize for her work on Women’s employment and pay (only the 3rd women to receive the prize and the first not to share the award with male colleagues) we certainly aren’t there yet”.
