In light of the persistent headlines about wage disparities between men and women, it warms our hearts to read about women that have broken the glass ceiling in male-dominated fields. This week we sat with Nickay Piper, a technology maverick and social listening whiz kid to discuss what’s good about being a female tech entrepreneur.
What I love about being a woman in technology is being able to be at the cutting edge of tomorrow’s industries by developing solutions that have meaning. Women have a keen attention to detail, a knack for solving problems, and a resilience that’s second to none. Tech is a fast-paced, results-driven industry, and it allows me to put what comes naturally to great use. I always chuckle when anyone is surprised to see a woman in technology and our achievements, because our biology “says” that we fit perfectly in the tech arena.
