As someone who’s climbed to VP of Marketing for an industry-leading software company, my advice to women seeking to advance themselves in the tech space is to be badass and to be fearless. Don’t accept it when someone dismisses your direction or experience – lead by example and remind your peers that your knowledge brings value to your organization. People are often treated in the way that they allow others to treat them. Start out strong and be assertive, don’t allow yourself to be trampled on, or to be an afterthought at a meeting.
