  • Make sure you negotiate your salary at the range that you should be in and make it non-negotiable.
  • Tech leaders should teach young adults in impoverished situations or who have low education, and get them into tech.
  • The mindset is within determination and believing in yourself.
  • Demonstrate for other people and just put yourself out there.
  • If something’s important to you, despite not having all the answers. You will figure it out, just be patient with yourself.

Creating and Empowering a Diverse Workforce

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the talented and insightful Sonia Wadhwa (Chief of Staff and Director of Business Operations, Microsoft), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • Be intentional and proactive about seeking out diverse individuals who'd benefit from your mentorship.

Whether you are currently in your dream job or looking for something new, you won't want to miss these strategies to help yourself, your colleagues and friends to make the meaningful progress in their career.
