The transformative power of cloud can only be fully realized by the big idea solutions built upon it. We would be doing the world – organizations and individuals – a massive disservice if we failed in our collective duty to make certain that women have equal opportunity to bring their disruptive and innovative ideas to market.
I initially joined the Women in Cloud community out of admiration and respect for its co-founders Chaitra Vedullapalli and Karen Fassio. I am immensely grateful to them for sparking my awareness of the desperate need for solutions and companies to be evaluated solely on their merits without regard to the gender of their creators.
The thought that my own daughter, herself an aspiring tech entrepreneur, could be denied the chance to succeed solely because of her gender is both unfair and infuriating. Women in Cloud is changing that for hundreds of women around the world, and I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to lend my voice to the ever-growing chorus for economic inclusion.
As a panel member on the topic of Male Allyship for the third annual Women in Cloud Summit 2020, I am looking forward to witnessing and discussing the growth of our mission as a community. We will be close to achieving fair and equal economic access when we have progressed along the spectrum from conscious bias to unconscious inclusion.
Women in Cloud is about to host entrepreneurs with excellent solutions from our industry. Purchase tickets today, to join us in Seattle on January 25 to learn, understand, contribute, and grow with everybody during and after the summit.
