Today, we see more women play the roles that men once highly dominated, particularly in the technology space. Our community is becoming more accepting and naturally moving in that direction. However, inequality is still prevalent and requires more focus and effort to address.
Business technology consultant Sarah Freeman saw gaps in the industry regarding women and minorities. She made it her life's purpose to alleviate the conditions and create solutions through her work and nonprofit passion projects. It is possible to profit with perfect purpose and address the digital divide with the power of being female.
Tune in to this episode of Someone Gets Me — Women in Technology with Sarah Freeman ▶️
Key points covered in this episode:
✔️Sarah celebrates her 17th year in a career in technology. She recalls why it's such a blessing that she followed her instinct pursuing her love of computers instead of following her family's advice to go into sales.
✔️ Even as the number of women going into technology is on the rise, it still isn't easy. Sarah helps women get into the field and get over that stigma.
✔️Sarah's partnerships with various nonprofits in the Phoenix area have allowed her to deliver computers directly to students in need. She also volunteers at Warriors Code as a side project, helping minorities receive tech certifications.
✔️ Implementing a woman's intuition would mean making conversations with suppliers, tech people and network engineers that sometimes would receive blank stares. Today she talks about how spirituality and manifestation are at the forefront of society with increased interest from men.
✔️ Intuition is not what many people think; it is not all woo-woo. It is the highest form of intelligence. And when you combine it with trust, openness, and awareness — verifying and confirming what you're getting, then it becomes a total game-changer.
✔️ There is genius in inclusion. Unless organizations fully realize that valuing diversity and prioritizing people and their differences must be adapted as a culture, we cannot achieve our fullest potential as a nation and as citizens of the world.
