I believe strongly in cultivating leaders. It is essential to create workplaces where women’s voices are amplified. I will always encourage young women to enter the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields: Women everywhere should grow up encouraged to become whatever they want to be. I want to be an ally to women in the workforce as best as possible, not just because I have a daughter who I want to see succeed, but because I believe that companies work best when diversity of thought, people, and expertise are entrenched core beliefs.
At Extreme, we know there is always more work to do. But we are proud of the diverse talent pool we have created and the outstanding work our people produce every day around the world. On International Women in Engineering Day, we’re taking the opportunity to recognize three of our most outstanding engineers at Extreme.
Indhu Balraj – Senior Engineering Director
Uma Parthasarathy- Sr Director of QA Engineering
Anu Gade- Sr. Director of Product Management
