We started our careers in the tech industry knowing that only 16% of women hold senior-level positions, with just 10% at the executive level. And we wanted to challenge that. Today, as leaders in both Sales and Technical Solutions at Datadog, we have the opportunity to change the status quo, and progress the company forward through the successful management of our own teams and departments. We have learned many lessons through failure and success on our own career paths, and we want to share our advice and stories with other aspiring tech industry leaders so that together we can move the needle on female representation in this male-dominated industry.

In this chat we want you to walk away with:

  • Actionable steps you can take to achieve success in tech
  • Skills to hone if you'd like to become a leader in this space
  • Talking points to start the conversation around career progression with your managers
