“I do not believe women shy away from any challenge, let alone that of managing technology. With so many calls on their time, prioritising is logical and unfortunately, technology operations tend to be very demanding across a 24×7 cycle.
For women to succeed in any field, a support ecosystem that recognises their unique challenges is essential. When women work against subconscious conditioning and believe that their careers are as critical, they will co-opt their family and extended network into being their partners in this journey.
Traditionally, women tend to be more self-sacrificing and likely to give up their aspirations for the perceived larger good. Millennials seem to be challenging these mindsets and it is only a matter of time before women step up to claim their right not only to education but also to a fulfilling career.”
