When I first joined the workforce I was given a dongle and used the hotel room phone to access my email at speeds that wouldn’t even power Slack today. I tried to explain this to my 11-year-old and she looked at me like I had a cat on my head. My point wasn’t so much about dial-up Internet, but that I’ve seen a lot since I joined the software industry 20 years ago. I’ve picked up and moved for jobs, both before and after starting a family, worked remotely and in an office. I’ve worked for large enterprises, mid-size companies, and startups. When I was promoted from technical support at my first job, I was the third female to join our team of 100 global consultants.

I’ve spent the last several years focusing on supply chain and logistics and have seen an evolution in both technology and what the workforce looks like for women.
