186: Embracing Your Differences As A Woman In Tech

Are you walking in your full color at work?

Let’s talk about embracing your differences as a woman in tech!

In today’s episode, I invite Vice President and Digital Business Transformation Leader, Shikha Bajaj, to talk to us about “owning your color” and how you can show up as who you really are at work (and succeed and thrive while doing it). We dive into mentorship, breaking barriers, and lifting each other up our way to the top.

Ready to show up as the best version of yourself in your career?

Let’s go to the show!

We dive into:

  • Shikha’s upbringing in India and journey into tech and mentorship
  • The mentorship program she started during Covid
  • Building connection & trust in a mentor/mentee relationship
  • Navigating the fine line between embracing your executive presence and becoming like the men in the room
  • How to own/embrace “your color” & find fulfillment in your career
  • And more
