Here is more information about this live chat with Mya and Margo:
Innovative leaders are creative visionaries who have big ideas and, most importantly, can motivate people around them to turn those ideas into reality. We learned that developing your innovation capabilities is critical if you want to stay at the forefront of ever-changing trends and create impact. As women leaders, we think there's a disruptor and innovator in all of us. In this chat, we want you to walk away empowered to:
- Consciously challenge personal, professional and industry assumptions
- Continuously embrace the opportunity mode of thinking and leading with innovation
- Develop empathy for the end customer
- Be a pro at building the buy-in for your ideas
MEET THE SPEAKERS
As an integration Product Manager at PagerDuty, I work with engineering, design, and marketing to create and launch new products or feature enhancements that connect PagerDuty and strategic third parties via an integration or application. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering, traveling, watching movies, and trying new food and cultures.
I'm a Front-End Engineer at PagerDuty, interested in building simple and intuitive user experiences that help people do complex tasks without reading software manuals. My background is in Computer Science and Art History, and I run marathons for fun. My favorite food is cereal.
Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
