Three small changes that could make a big difference for aspiring female tech leaders

  • Think about how to present your work — showcase it with honour and improve your presentation skills
  • Learn from others how they do it (those in leadership and those working towards it) — finding a mentor is a great way to explore this
  • Raise awareness of the modesty norm and support others
  • Remind yourself that self-promotion is not bragging!
  • Do what you love and follow where that takes you
  • Enjoying what you do can increase your progress — this isn’t always 100% attainable, but ultimately if you love and care about what you’re doing, you’re more likely to perform better.
  • Be tangible with your achievements in order to facilitate promotions and opportunities
  • Have the right attitude and a growth mindset — be open to feedback and change, it helps you grow and evolve your skillset and become better at your craft.
  • Initiating Mentorship programmes
  • Inaugurating Sponsorship programmes
  • Tailoring multiple growth paths to individuals
