Leading the Charge

“I felt a lot of pressure because I thought maybe other women might not follow in my footsteps if I didn’t succeed. I felt a huge responsibility to show that women can flourish in this field, and I would say that I have achieved that. Today, the ratio of male to female professors is more even, and it’s great to see so many women on the programs for key conferences and so on, but – of course – there is still some way to go. To any women considering entering this field, I say go for it! It’s a fantastic career with endless opportunities, and a little confidence can go a long way. In fact, if I could give my younger self any advice, it would be to have more confidence: you’re capable of much more than you realize.”
