“I wish I would have known the power of networking much earlier on. You have probably already heard the saying “it’s not important what you know — it’s important who you know” which is very often true. After all, people are the best resource to navigate career moves and strengthen your knowledge base. Another piece of advice is trying to be a problem solver and not someone that only points out problems. If you notice something that needs improvement, think about how to fix it instead of just pointing it out.” Melanie

“Think about the solution, not about the problem itself! Identify your mistakes quickly, and here is the challenge, you don’t know if you are making mistakes or not. You always need to go on. Then you need to have the courage to correct it. So, please fail often. Fail fast. Fail fast to succeed.” Jennet

“Never stop learning new things and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. After all, real professionals always learn something new, including from their own mistakes, because otherwise, it is impossible to become better and achieve new heights.” Inna.

“Surely our world would be balanced better, more equal and more diversified as women’s approach to the tech products development would be better represented. Men and women sometimes have different visions of how to satisfy the tech products demand, and women would be able to create part of the demand on the market which would never pass through a man’s brain. So being short, I believe that there must be “natural” women’s presence in Tech, and the most important thing is that there must not be obstacles for women to be a part of the Tech world.” Jennet

“If we had more diverse voices it would mean products or services would work for everyone and I also believe that it would change the way women are treated in society. There are so many examples to have a better world with more women in tech — for sure there would have been better safety measures in place with ride-sharing services to avoid sexual harassments or we would get better designed cars that focus on simple woman friendly aspects like storage space or different body size assumptions, health apps wouldn’t forget that we have our periods, medical trials would be less biased with the consideration of the impact of sex and gender…” Melanie.
