What made you choose the IT sector?

"I have never actually worked in IT but have always had to work with an IT department and to me they are the super heroes in a company. When I got into the industry, what motivated me toKaren_Borras-1 pick IT was that I was going to be able to provide them with a platform that would make them do their jobs even better."
Karen Boras, Director of Customer Success


What's a common misconception about women in tech?

"I notice it less and less, but there are still men who, just because you are a woman, take away your credibility and give you less value. and prefer to be attended by a man. Something that emotionally does not sit very well."
Amanda Díaz, Customer Services

"In Romania, the IT field is pretty new and has lots of young people. Also, lots of womenIoana_Haralamb-1 are working in this field, so I can't say I've seen misconceptions about women in IT. At least, not in the companies/communities I've worked on."
Ioana Haralamb, Scrum Master

What has been your biggest professional challenge?

"My biggest professional challenge has been to change sectors so radically, to study, study, study and continue studying. I am currently in this challenge because this is new to me, but IAmanda_Diaz-1 feel satisfied with the support I receive from all my colleagues to continue learning. but I feel satisfied with the support I receive from all my colleagues to keep on learning."

What do you think leaders should do to make leadership positions more accessible to women?

"I was once told not to look at the name on resumes and look at what the experience and knowledge they can provide when hiring. A lot of times you will be surprised with the fact that the resume that brings you interest is a woman. Another thought, provide the option to haveKaren_Borras-1 training and coaching to the women you have on your team so that they can have the knowledge to expand when an opportunity comes up for them and have the same chances."
Karen Boras, Director of Customer Success


Celebrating and empowering women in STEM and Tech is crucial for creating a more diverse and inclusive industry. Historically, women have been underrepresented in these fields, and it's important to recognize and celebrate the contributions that women have made to the tech industry throughout history. By doing so, we can inspire future generations of women to pursue careers in tech and provide them with the support and resources they need to succeed.

Not only is it important to celebrate the accomplishments of women in tech, but it's also important to actively work towards creating a more inclusive industry. This means addressing and dismantling the barriers that prevent women, and other underrepresented groups, from entering and thriving in tech careers. By doing so, we can unlock the full potential of the tech industry and create more innovative, dynamic, and equitable workplaces.
