Today when I think about diversity I actually think about the word ‘inclusion.’ And I think this is a time of great inclusion. It’s not men it’s not women alone. Whether it’s geographic it’s approach it’s your style it’s your way of learning the way you want to contribute it’s your age – it is really broad.
And so when I moved to IBM I moved because I thought I could apply technology. I didn’t actually have to do my engineer – I was an electrical engineer but I could apply it. And that was when I changed. And when I got there though I have to say at the time I really never felt there was a constraint about being a woman. I really did not.
IBM’s long-standing mantra is ‘Think.’ What has always made IBM a fascinating and compelling place for me is the passion of the company and its people to apply technology and scientific thinking to major societal issues.
