Economic access to women in STEM is something that both Women in Cloud and I value greatly. I was drawn to the Women in Cloud community because of its mission to empower women in STEM roles by harnessing the collective power of the tech community to identify gaps for women within this industry. As someone who’s vocation is creating inclusive and community-like company cultures, I resonated heavily with how Women in Cloud provides a platform for female voices to be heard, valued, and welcomed at all levels of the tech industry to create an extremely inclusive culture.

I pursued engineering within my education, I want to give back to the community by providing mentorship to STEM students who are currently in the exploration phase of their careers. I firmly believe that there should be more opportunities for funding for women in STEM and even a national women’s tech month that highlights the accomplishments of women in STEM. We need to provide role models and examples to young girls to motivate them to pursue careers in STEM. 

I am honoured to be presenting at the Women in Cloud Digital Summit 2021 on the topic ‘5 Keys to a High Performing Remote Team.’ Through this presentation, I want attendees to learn to be inclusive and intentional with their team communication, enhance team relationships, and align everyone around them to focus on the highest business priorities. Virtual workspaces, events and networking have suddenly become our new reality. Strategic, effective communication within any virtual environment is critical, and if a team embodies these elements, it will set them for success within their endeavors.

In my opinion, just as teams must dismantle patterns of communication that are harmful, similarly, the STEM community needs to break down the social barriers against women pursuing leadership roles in these fields. The future of the technology industry is depending on us to harness the collective power of communities like Women in Cloud to elevate the voices of the underrepresented and unheard.
