“In the male dominated world of Tech, women everywhere are missing out on the opportunity to shape the world we live in.

Tech is entrenched in our daily lives by the apps we use to manage our interactions, our money, our health, our homes and our schedules. Yet, women only make up a tiny portion of the workforce responsible for this ongoing digital transformation.

This can and needs to change. Whether she loves to design, create, organize or all of the above, there are ample ways for women to take a seat and make their mark on the future.

Also, why let men have all the fun? Tech is challenging, rewarding and comes with tons of perks - it’s time we took a collective leap and joined the party!”

“As a female leader in the workforce, I believe it’s our responsibility to empower the next generation of female leaders. I believe that empowerment begins in our communities and in the classroom. By helping young women develop leadership and team-building skills early in life, we are preparing them to take on challenges and new responsibilities as they enter the workforce. As I recruit talented women, I am thinking about the role they are being hired for and where they can make an impact in the company. My hope for each woman I hire is that I teach and empower them to be great leaders and share what they’ve learned with other females in the workforce.”

“Seeing women in leadership roles inspires me to push myself to develop so I can get to the next level. It also pushes me to pay it forward and mentor other women so they can advance their careers. It is critical for women to see other women succeed.”
