In March 2021, I founded CLEVR Women's Network, where CLEVR women are coming together to socialize, inspire, brainstorm, motivate and support each other. Growing up in a world that teaches girls and women to see each other as competition, and especially in a field like technology where women are underrepresented, I love seeing the empowerment of women reaching out to one another and becoming each other's allies and friends.
As a RightBrains ambassador, I contribute to its mission to grow the number of women in digital-focused roles. Why? Because we believe it creates an opportunity for innovation and success. RightBrains, together with its partners, is building a match and mentor platform where women at all career stages can explore their interests while networking with peers and industry thought-leaders.
I love reading books. This includes both fiction and non-fiction. I also love talking about them! That’s why I’ve joined two book clubs, and one of them is CLEVR’s book club. I get inspired hearing people’s different perspectives on a story, challenging how I view the world. My favorite picks? This may change, but I highly recommend the Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, and the Neapolitan Quartet by Elena Ferrante.
