TTT #16: "Women in Business" with Tanisha Sharma

The Tomato Timer Apr 27, 2020

Female representation in areas related to technology and business is far from enough. The conditions preventing women from institutionalizing their places, however, is not just an individualistic loss of opportunity. It is as much a loss for these sectors.

Each community has diverse experiences and different lines of thought. Representation, apart from fostering an inclusive environment, brings new perspectives to the table, eventually making people rethink and come up with accommodative results.

As a business analyst in tech as a woman, Tanisha Sharma gives us an insight into her experiences while discussing the importance of more women coming in.

She mentions the experiences that helped solidify her position and helped her through her professional journey. While seeing everyone bicker about assignments and exams, projecting exams as the most significant, and sometimes the only, element of student life, devoting time and energy to something else might feel discouraging. But skills and experiences do matter later on.  The network you build will expose you to tons of opportunities, and learning never goes waste.

Tanisha spans through the roles she is involved in and shifts in the same during the pandemic. Looking back, she reflects on her journey and comes up with a note of advice she believes in.

Dream big, aim high because even if you cannot achieve your aim, it will still make sure that you reach in a good enough place.
