What advice would you offer women entering a traditionally male-dominated industry?

“My advice is to be yourself and use your unique skills. As women, we may bring a different perspective to a situation than a man would, and that’s certainly been true throughout my career. The ability to collaborate is such a powerful tool. I use convening skills and listening to draw people together, and I’ve found that once you’ve established commonality, you can work on the various points of disagreement. That’s a real strength that women can bring to the table.”
