You can be social and STEM. You can be bold & STEM. You can be empathic & STEM. Do not accept the labels.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I'm leading different teams to improve the quality or our services , products & specially communication. I'm involved in trainees & young employees integration.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I'm Persian. I came to France in 2012. Because after different social movement & activities in my country, I realized that as a woman, I need more space. I'm not just someones daughter or wife and if I want to prove it, I have to take my place. Why this job? Because I love challenges. I love building solutions, helping team members to share their pinpoints and make the "work" environment more comfortable for all. Diversity & inclusion is my next goal. Issues are not the same all around the world and I want to help my adoption country to progress in this domain.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
In my personal achievement... Honestly nothing ! I think that I'm not yet at this point. All that I have achieved I knew that it was possible & even is less than what I could do...
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
Oups.. Already answered... I love building solutions ! I loved working in IT solution creation & improvement & now that it's combined with social engineering I'm really fulfilled with happiness when I go to work.
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
Being in STEM domain doesn't mean that you are nerdy. You can be social and STEM. You can be bold & STEM. You can be empathic & STEM. Do not accept the labels. You are who you are. You just have to do what makes you happy. Don't be afraid of failures. It will always learn you something.
