“Never let your voice be silenced. Chase your goals and dreams. If you fall, get up and try again. Show the world you are amazing and powerful.”

“To create a more diverse and inclusive tech world, we need to inspire and empower the next generation of female role models to pursue and develop their career in technology and become innovators, leaders and entrepreneurs. It’s a process and it’s not always straightforward. It takes time, action and support. Together we can make a difference.”

Angela Jajko

Go To Market Program Manager

Celebrating women’s achievements, championing diversity, equity, and inclusion, and creating opportunities for people to shine is how I work to make a positive difference and take action for equality. As Kasia Gospos said, ”Amazing things happen when women help other women.”

Dori Jeffries

Director of Financial Planning and Analysis

Surround yourself with women with different viewpoints and strengths than your own. Introduce them to other incredible women. Create a posse who will build you up and more importantly, always be honest with you. Support their ambitions. Amplify their voices. Don’t allow them to be overly humble and celebrate the wins. Give them a safe place. And let them do that all for you too.

May we know them

May we be them

May we raise them”

Cecilia Mendoza

Senior Talent Manager

I am proud to a part of the tech community as a woman. We are setting the stage for our future female leaders.

Patty Shrum

SVP of Managed Services

As I reflect back on my career, I will not measure my success by my title, but by the positive impact I made with the individuals I was fortunate enough to lead and work with along the way.

Emily Puga

Talent Acquisition and Resource Manager

As women in technology, we must lift each other up in an industry of primarily men. I feel so fortunate to work for a company that values female leaders but not everyone is as lucky. We must mentor, coach, and provide help to each other to push the world towards equality in all industries and workplaces. If you are feeling suppressed, raise your hand and challenge the policies or people that may be keeping you down. #choosetochallenge

May we know them.

May we raise them.”

Charlie Anderson

I am determined to bring about positive change for women in technology. I stay active in groups that support women in the workforce, gender equality, and the judicial system. My passion remains focused on challenging myself to constantly innovate and help other women succeed.

Sara Ramsey 

Manager of IT Operations

Throughout my life, every successful woman I’ve met has become a beacon of inspiration for me. Their accomplishments filled me with the desire to work hard and prove myself. When we advocate for and connect with other women, we open the door to an empowerment that elevates every room we step into and fills it with limitless possibilities.

Tina Fairchild

All of my life I have admired strong independent women who paved the way for me to achieve my dreams. I have also had the privilege to raised by a strong feisty mother and spirited funny father who both taught me that I could achieve whatever my heart desired with hard work and determination.

Ritika Kharbanda

I believe in uplifting women. When you uplift people around you, empowerment will follow and equality will exist.

“Every woman’s success should be an inspiration to another.  We’re strongest when we cheer each other on.” 

-Serena Williams

Lauren Michelle Urrutia

It is important that women in tech and business support, mentor and encourage other women so we can become more confident and powerful in what we do today, and so we can do it even better tomorrow.

Jade Law

“There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.”

– Michelle Obama

Melissa Munnerlyn 

Director of Human Resources & Administration

As a professional woman, everything I have achieved in my career has been possible due to the actions of other women. From the Suffragettes, to the Women’s Liberation Movement, to each and every female leader who has  ever encouraged and mentored me. Without those who came before, none of my success would have been possible. Therefore, I try hard to be an example to others, to mentor and guide other women walking the halls of corporate life.

Lindsey Turner

Manager of Customer Success 

“Women no longer have an ‘if I can’ mindset. Now it’s more about ‘how I can’—be in tech, start something in tech, fund something in tech. That shift is exciting! And it happened because we created a network where we show, daily, that women are innovating.”

– Shaherose Charania (Co-founder and CEO of Women 2.0)

Sash Sunkara 

Business Development Manager

I believe the continual focus on women’s equality in the workforce and more specifically women in technology will not only provide more opportunities for women of all races in the workforce today but more importantly it will have a significant impact on future generations of working women. I have two daughters so this is a subject very close to my heart. It is not just up to women but also men to ensure equality in the workforce in regards to pay, upward mobility and opportunities which is all critical for business success.

Trish Palumbo

VP of Talent Acquisition, Learning and Development

International Women’s day is about awareness, reflection, shifts and progress from both an individual and cultural perspective. It is the aggregation of our internal and external shifts, of how we value oneself and each other that will continue to propel us into a more equitable playing field. One of my favorite quotes that reflects the power of introspective change is by Lalah Delia “She remembered who she was, and the game changed.”

Rachel Beckler

Director of Marketing and Demand

This month is a celebration of the work we are all doing to lay the foundation for women to grow, be heard, and bring our full selves to our careers and personal lives. We must believe in our power to be change agents through every interaction.
