It is no secret that the technical world is a male-dominated
space. From the cultural belief that Computer Science is a
â€śsubject for boysâ€ť, to the assumptions and discrimination
women experience in the field, it can be challenging for
women at every stage to thrive in tech careers.
Nevertheless, some high-performing women persist and succeed
as leaders in tech despite the gender biases pitted against
them. Pratima Rao Gluckmanâ€”a female leader in tech
herselfâ€”embarked on a project to collect stories of the
leadership journeys of such women. She wanted to know the
details of these womenâ€™s stories, and how they accomplished
their achievements. What influenced them during their
childhoods? Who were their mentors? What successes and
failures did they experience? What magical ingredients
helped them thrive in a male‑dominated industry?
These questions and more inspired Gluckman to interview
nineteen women leaders in several levels of technology
industry, including VPs, CEOs and directors, all of which
are collected in this groundbreaking book, Nevertheless, She
Persisted. Whether you are a young woman thinking of a
career in software, a middle-career or executive woman, a
parent, or a man curious about the role gender plays in
tech, this book reveals the secrets, successes, and hidden
struggles that women have endured to become both highly
accomplished in their technical skills and effective senior
leaders in their organizations. Their stories are
illuminating, intended to inspire generations of women and
help free our society from the limiting belief that ability
is somehow linked to gender.
