Tuesday 27th of November 2018 marked the final dinner event in the Women in Business Club Dinner Series.
The theme for the evening was “Women in Tech”.
Present were the below business leaders:
Maria-Jose Sobrini – Director, Country Digitization, EMEAR at Cisco Systems
Mónica Villas – IBM SPGI technical executive & Cloud teacher in Digital Transformation Master at ICEMD
Ana Alonso – Strategic Sales Director, Enterprise Commercial at Microsoft EMEA
Christina Stathopoulos – Analytical Consultant at Google Project Development & Big Data
Alissa Warne, a September IMBA, Forte Fellow, and VP of the IE Technology and Innovation Club said about the dinner: “The Women in Tech dinner was a unique opportunity to speak with female leaders at Microsoft, Google, Cisco and IBM about overcoming unconscious bias in the workplace and how to build a successful career after the MBA. We discussed a number of topics from the importance of mentors and a support network as well as being assertive in the workplace and salary negotiations.
These women have been very successful in navigating a career in tech surrounded by men, and I really appreciated them sharing their insights and career path with us.”
