International Women's Day 2020 - Nickie Scorgie


As a professional businesswoman, equality is about treating individuals fairly regardless of their age, gender, race and other characteristics, as this is central to business ethics and effective people management. Equality not only means opportunities should be available to everyone; it means that everyone can have the chance to develop their potential.

My mum is my role model. She is so caring and lives for her family and does so much for others. Don’t get me wrong she can also be a ‘nugget’ ??, but she is the cutest, sassiest 77-year-old chick I know and love dearly.

She brought me and my siblings up to;

  • Never say can’t
  • Never be a “what if”
  • Believe in one’s self
  • Have confidence
  • And most importantly, have fun and be happy as you only get one life……….

Thanks Mum, love you xx

I recently joined the Army Cadet Force as an adult volunteer with a commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of young people and Aberdeen’s communities.

I bet you’re asking; why?  Well, it’s a new challenge, it’s pushing me personally into a whole new territory of ‘unknown’, both scary but also exciting!  There are no barriers to what you can achieve, and for me it’s about giving something back and empowering young people to become strong, independent individuals.

The world these days is based so much on how you look, and l am as guilty for this as the next person. At work l have to project a professional image, being in uniform allows me to have a different side without the five inch heels ??
