Director of Engineering, Imperfect Foods
Tell us about a thing you have wanted to do and were told you couldn’t–or were made to feel as though you couldn’t–and you think it’s because you’re a woman?
Time and time again, I am encouraged (whether implicitly or explicitly) to “stay in my lane” simply because male leaders aren’t willing or able to envision what it would look like to do anything differently. Businesses would be much better off if they embraced the creativity and desire of their female employees to broaden their roles. I love being a technologist, but I think that I can have an even more meaningful impact if I’m able to contribute to an organization from both the technical and business lenses.
