She Was Hired At 9 Months Pregnant To Lead Tech Teams At Dow Jones

Mona Soni's story about being hired by Dow Jones at nine months pregnant (yes, she took three months of paid maternity leave) is pretty remarkable. And yet, it doesn't have to be. Dow Jones saw Mona for the skills she brought to the company - and nothing less. They needed her to run engineering teams in New York and Minneapolis. Not only did Dow Jones' investment in Mona pay off, but the company is also sending a clear message that they'll do what it takes to include top women in tech.

One of the main reasons we started PowerToFly was to get more compares to understand how investing in women pays off in the long run. If you want proof of Mona's success to-date then look at what Dow Jones has produced since hiring her: world class news products that keep financial markets and investors up to speed each day.

(Another fun fact about Mona and the video above, is that she was pregnant with her second child when we shot it over the summer.)
