“Clothing is an important workplace issue because people judge you by what you wear, whether you like it or not. Your appearance directly impacts your salary and your earnings potential. We make clothing that is both attractive and functional, so women will feel confident when they walk into that big meeting.” –Sali Christeson, co-founder and CEO, @Argent.\ #wepowertech #amazonwebservices
“I love innovation and Amazon is probably the most innovative company in the world. I wanted to be part of the customer obsession that AWS has. I wanted to know how Amazon keeps having hit after hit. If I were giving advice to a young woman, I would tell her to pursue her dreams by experimenting. I would tell her to know a bit about tech because tech is everywhere. And I would tell her that success doesn’t move top to bottom, it goes sideways and zigzags.” –Sandy Carter, Vice President, Amazon Web Services #wepowertech #amazonwebservices
Big News: @Amazon Web Services collaborated with Me&EVE at the Girls in Tech conference this year. For the rest of the week I will be sharing what we produced. Thank you again Amazon Web Services for helping me give women an opportunity to be seen and heard.
Yes, I realize Aaron is not a woman. On occasion here at me&EVE we feature men who are supporting women to be seen and heard and that is exactly what Aaron Levie is doing at Box.
“At Box, we use AWS in a variety of ways and we think of AWS as a force multiplier. My best advice is to surround yourself with great people that you like spending time with. Be clear on your principles, both professionally and personally, and use them to navigate your decisions.” –Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO, Box
