At the WomenTech Network, we’re fortunate to have a wonderful, global community of ambassadors who help us spread the word about our work and who helped us make the WomenTech Global Conference 2020 a success and continue helping us on or mission to unite women in tech. We would like you to meet these wonderful people as well; therefore, we’re going to be introducing you to some of our most active members.
Today, get to know Alexandra-Maria Dobrescu:
Alexandra-Maria Dobrescu is a Data Scientist at BRD- Groupe Societe Generale, originally from Bucharest, Romania where she obtained her BSc degree in Computer Science. We spoke with Alexandra to find out more about our Global Ambassador and her views on Women in tech.
In Alexandra-Maria’s Own Words:
What is the best part of being a woman in the tech industry?
What I appreciate most about being present in the tech industry as a woman is that you can bring your unique perspective and trace connections between different domains in your projects. As technology evolves continuously, you can merge your creativity with your technical skills and have an original impact instantly.
Can women have kids and a tech career?
I want to believe that every woman can achieve this and the aforementioned bias will no longer exist. We should choose the appropriate models which can help and inspire us to have an ordered life, with regular routines that prioritise what truly matters to us and work towards achieving our purposes.
As we go further, we can find the balance to “love your family, work super hard, live your passion” as Gary Vaynerchuk states.
How can women get the right support?
I consider that the first level of support exists inside us and that we should believe in ourselves: our expertise, our instincts and our original perspective.
Further, as the second level of support, we should always look for good connections, build trust in our communities, choose people with a positive impact that may have the same interests as us.
