Our industry is putting a lot of effort into creating a more diverse workplace. Despite the efforts, anecdotal evidence and the current employment statistics suggest there is more work to do.
But, it is not all doom an gloom. On this episode I speak with Lee-Ann Dias, a Partner Solutions Professional at Microsoft, who is thumbing her nose at the statistics. Lee-Ann's has worked in areas from Customer Success to Technical and Business Development.
Lee-Ann is poster child for the The Woman in Tech movement. Her career began off the back of a university degree in computer science and has continued to soar.
There are many paths for entry into this industry for women, but some are working better than others. I thought it would be interesting to talk to Lee-Ann about her career success to date and get her thoughts on how we can improve the pathways for women.
