Self-Belief: The Unseen Superpower of Women in Tech¬†ūüĆü

Yesterday, I stumbled upon a story that resonates deeply with many of us ‚ÄĒa narrative that many women in tech will find familiar and inspiring. It's the journey of Ange Nash, detailed in an opinion piece for CIO Magazine. From her beginnings as a rural kid in New Zealand, enthralled by the possibilities of coding, to her ascent to becoming an award-winning Chief Information Officer (CIO), there's a potent thread woven throughout her story: self-belief.


For women navigating the tech industry, the road is often strewn with unique challenges. There are many hurdles, from the early onset of imposter syndrome to the complex task of balancing a career with a personal life, especially after parental leave. Yet, stories like Ange's illuminate a crucial truth: understanding your value and the strength of your journey is non-negotiable.





Your voice is essential. Your experiences, rich and varied, add invaluable depth to the tech landscape. And yes, you've undoubtedly earned your place at the table.


This brings us to a critical question: Are we, as an industry and community, doing enough to support and uplift young women stepping into the world of tech? The journey from education to career advancement presents numerous opportunities for enhanced support, whether through mentorship, progressive organizational policies, or ongoing learning and development initiatives.


Drawing from my experiences transitioning from academia to founding a tech startup, I've witnessed the transformative power of mentorship and a strong learning environment. These elements are vital for navigating the industry and thriving within it.


To all the young women in tech doubting their worth or questioning their capabilities‚ÄĒknow this: you are more than enough. It's not just about the codes we write, the products we innovate, or the solutions we craft. It's about the lives we touch, the paths we illuminate for those who follow, and the inclusive future we're building, one line of code at a time.


As we continue to push boundaries and break ceilings, let's commit to fostering a tech world that celebrates diversity, champions inclusivity, and recognizes the unparalleled strength that comes from believing in oneself.
