Gina Uyema, Senior Manager - Planning & Engineering
On overcompensating and confidence as a female working in a male-dominated industry:
"What I've learned during the years is that's the complete opposite of what you should do. Take a role that you're yourself. It will get you further in your career than you think."
Sheilah Lee - Lead Business Analyst
On careers available in the technology industry:
"You think of technology as something very technical -- you have to be a coder [or all these intricate things]. There are many different flavors and careers in technology. For me it's more of the analysis part...and that's the part I like the best."
Kimberly Fujita - Technical Operations Manager, Advanced Services
On choosing her place of work in technology that aligned with her beliefs and values:
"I'll never forget my first interview. I thought I did really poorly and I remember telling my boss at the very end of the interview. I said, "Well you know thank you for your time. I really appreciate it. I will see you again because this is where I want to work."
Jaydence Goya - Senior Manager, Strategy & Broadband Deployment
On seeing more women in technology roles:
"I have seen that growth. I think we bring a different perspective to the table and I have the opportunity to work with a lot of great women, very intelligent women that I look up to in the company. I'm hoping that I can be that to others."
