What advice would you give to people, especially women looking for a role in IT?
Go for it only if you enjoy doing it. IT offers wide variety of roles, not just technical but creative too. Identify what your strengths are and choose what role suits you the best. Build networking in and out of organization and be aware of latest happenings in your domain.
Have you encountered any issues with being a woman in IT?
No, I have not encountered any issues. The only advantage of being a woman is that we are tuned in our DNA to handle multi-tasking with ease, otherwise you are as good as any of your co-workers. You are judged based on your performance and what you deliver.
Any final comments?
Believe in yourself and do not let down by imposter syndrome.
