ST Women in Technology - 31

PART OF THE FUN OF BEING ONE
OF THE MOST SENIOR WOMEN IN IT
IS KNOWING THAT OTHER WOMEN
CAN LOOK AT ME AND THINK,
"OKAY, I COULD DO THAT."

robots respond to situations depends on who
programs them, so we need women on the
design team to make sure their responses are
diverse and representative.
If you're aiming for the C-suite, you need to
understand the business, but you also need a
network of people you can call on and trust to
tell things as they are, because as you rise, more

people will tell you what they think you want
to hear instead of what you need to hear. It's
also important to take on opportunities no one
else wants. Those experiences teach you more
flexibility and tools for managing in complicated
situations, and you'll emerge having made a
difference.
I wouldn't advise women who want to be CIOs
to fixate on reaching the role. I would tell them
to focus on the impact they can make, both on
technology solutions and on society, and how
they can develop and challenge themselves
as they grow. That's how you get offered the
leadership positions. Maybe it's because I'm
an engineer, but for me that's a process and
a methodology: start with an end in sight and
then figure out the steps to get there.

1  Even though there are more women leaders in IT
than ever, companies still need to be proactive about
cultivating them.

2 CIOs have to understand the entire business as well as
they understand the technology that enables it.

3 Without a broadly diverse leadership team, companies
risk creating products and services that only meet the
needs of a small portion of their potential market.
