Un mondo fondato sulle pari opportunità è un mondo che offre maggiori possibilità per tutti. L’uguaglianza di genere è fondamentale per l’economia e per la crescita. Per la Giornata internazionale della donna 2020 vogliamo festeggiare le incredibili donne della nostra community, motore dell’innovazione.
Abbiamo chiesto loro un consiglio per tutte le ragazze che sognano di intraprendere una carriera nel mondo del digitale e della tecnologia.
Senior Consultant, Talent Garden
We are at our best when we help each other to be the best! My biggest advise is to create your female network of support that can help you when you need the most and push you forward to reach your goals. Find a mentor that you can lean on and allow others to lean on you. Don’t be afraid to reach out, to ask for advise and allow yourself to give advise and make your voice heard – When women are there for other women, the sky is the limit (And make sure to not let anyone tell you otherwise!)

My advice is to fight against the stereotypes that affect our culture and our behavior. For example, there is this age-old “belief” that girls excel in language arts and social studies while boys excel in math and science. Sounds familiar? Imagine being a girl in an algebra class and being told that over and over again. You might start to believe that, although you are great in math, this is a boy’s field. For these reasons, girls are repeatedly discouraged from pursuing continued education in maths and science. This bias, whether or not unconscious, continues to the college and university level.
We need more women in technology to empower the next wave, and the next—and the one after that.

Be strong in your female point of view. It’s a value, not a weakness.
CEO, Mulan Group
Be your own heroine, don’t wait for your prince charming. I always like to cite Diane Von Fustenberg: “I didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I always knew what kind of woman I wanted to be.” Whether you are in tech or in other industries, what matters is the type of warrior you want to become in your own field. Warriors who would transcend any gender barrier. In 5 years my company will be like the heroine Mulan, who has made herself known and who, thanks to her feminine sensitivity, will have entered the hearts of all those who have known her.

Remember, girls: talent has no gender. Let your skills speak for you. Don’t let a higher number of male employees discourage you: stay focused on your objective. It doesn’t matter what you are, it’s what you want and what you’ll do to leave an impact that will change everything.
