Despite women making up nearly half of the global workforce, their representation in telecommunications falls short at less than 40%. This gap isn’t just a number; it represents a missed opportunity for innovation, diversity of thought, and transformative growth.
Before joining Crown Castle, my career led me through the intricate world of government and politics with U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, from intern to regional director, and taught me the nuances of leadership and the power of impactful change. My journey began with role models like my mother, who broke barriers in the STEM field (science, technology, engineering, math) as a diligent student to become a certified health physicist while balancing the demands of parenting. Now, as I transition to the dynamic world of telecommunications, I bring these lessons to a sector that is still bridging a significant gender gap with the goal of highlighting what’s possible when women receive the right support.
Crown Castle’s commitment to supporting women transcends hiring; it’s about nurturing growth, mentorship, and building a culture where diversity is not just welcomed but celebrated. We aim to break down barriers and create opportunities for women to thrive.
We start by inspiring young girls, showing them that careers in STEM are not only exciting and rewarding, but entirely within their reach. We are proud to promote access to education and technology in schools and underserved communities through our Connected by Good program and partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to help inspire the next generation of STEM leaders.
By middle school, more than twice as many boys than girls intend to work in science or engineering-related jobs, and by college, only 38% and 25% of all science and engineering degrees, respectively, go to women. Being visible role models and engaging in community outreach are crucial in kindling ambition.
Through my new role at Crown Castle, I am excited to work alongside the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and join forces with the Women’s Network to create a landscape where the potential of every individual is recognized and realized, setting a new standard for our industries and beyond.
Together, we have the opportunity to advocate for gender equality and nurture a community where every individual can flourish. By empowering women, we’re not just championing individual careers; we’re driving our industries and society toward a future enriched with diversity, innovation, and inclusivity.
