Women Engineers Who Inspire and Never Give Up

8 Jun 2017 2:40pm, by

The inspiration and lead-by-example approach to encourage women to never give up in their engineering careers seems critically needed in a technology market now mired by sexism and harassment.

In this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, we spoke with Margaret Mayer, vice president of engineering at Capital One, and Ashley McNamara, principal technologist at Pivotal. Recorded at the OSCON open source conference in Austin in April, the conversation centered on mentoring and tips for women who may be shy or don’t want to speak up.
