"Thinking ahead for my career plans, I have a keen desire to focus on two particular areas in order to be successful in sustaining growth in the coming decades. These are Digital Innovation and Education. To achieve this, I follow two pieces of contradictory advice: persistence and adaptability.
Technology improvements is not about generating cultural degradation and a disorienting level of fear. Instead, it is about highlighting the value of critical thinkers and providing an unprecedented level of opportunities to just about anyone who can afford it. As such, my plan is to continue pushing the boundaries of ICT/IT digital transformation via groundbreaking digital projects that revolutionise the way public administrations share information and interact with citizens. Information on European ICT initiatives is fragmented. Therefore, the following years, my desire is to promote a social welfare in terms of technology by focusing on projects that drive Digital Transformation at National and European levels and enabling decision making through data analytics in secure and agile environments.
According to a report by The World Bank, women make up less than 40% of the total global workforce. Considering that, there is a lack of representation for women in ICT which can hinder a woman’s ability to succeed in the industry. But also, it can put limits on women’s opportunities for mentorship and foster ‘unconscious gender bias in company culture’, leaving many women ‘without a clear path forward’. My multidisciplinary background as well as the challenges I faced during my career transition from Academia to ICT Consultancy, fueled me with passion to inspire and encourage women and girls who want to embrace a career in this industry. For this reason, I strive to act as an ICT Woman Ambassador committed to acting as a role model of the well-known moto ‘Imagining She can be anything is just the beginning. Actually, seeing that she can, makes all the difference’. After all, only a generation of thinkers that are serving a worthy purpose will spawn a generation of doers for social good.
