Hey Journalists: Start Writing More Articles about the Women Working in Tech Not at the C or VP Level if You Want to Get More Women in Tech

Posted by Ali Powell on Oct 28, 2014 5:27:51 PM

There are so many blog posts and articles that I see daily on how to get more women working in tech. They are all over. Every major publication, news site, or tech blog now has a section about women. That is great. I think we should keep doing that. But, if we want to expose more women to what it is like to work in many different roles in tech then we need to expose women of all ages and all expertise to real jobs that women have in tech at all levels. A lot of these articles talk about the lack of women in tech and give advice on how to get more women there. But, the only articles I read about women working in tech are with C level or VP level people being featured on those posts.

In a Sales Depression? Combat it with Life Goals and Energy for Prospecting

Posted by Ali Powell on Jul 9, 2014 11:17:00 AM

I have been doing sales at HubSpot for about 4 years now. As of August I will have been at HubSpot for 4 years. After 4 years of doing the same thing you can get into a bit of a motivational rut or as I would call it a sales depression.

2 Reasons Why I am Not Intimidated by Men as a Woman Working in Tech #LikeaGirl #MoreWomeninTech

Posted by Ali Powell on Jul 3, 2014 11:22:00 AM

There are lots of articles by women and men talking about what it takes to get more women into tech and keep more women in tech. One of the ideas that I read about today was around making the tech space and startup space less intimidating to women. I wonder how many women feel intimidated by the tech space because of how many men are there?

Why Women Should Stop Using the Word "Sorry" When Situations Don't Deserve It

Posted by Ali Powell on Jun 19, 2014 1:07:29 PM

I apologize all the time. I say sorry a lot in one day. It is already too far into the day for me to start counting so tomorrow I am going to keep a tally on my desk to see how many times I say the word "sorry." There are studies that show women apologize a lot, lot more than men do. We also are not saying sorry for things that deserve an apology. We say sorry for things that don't deserve saying sorry.
