Taking the leap into the tech & data world
Let's start with Rachel Pinto. She joined Arvato Financial Solutions last May as an IT trainee and thus has jumped into the Tech & Data world right after graduation.
As a woman just starting her career, what importance does the of International Women and Girls Science Day have for you?
Rachel: I think it's very important that there is a day like this. It shows the next generation and especially younger girls that their future is not determined by the fact that some career fields are declared as women's professions. I think it's important to use this day to emphasize that there is also a place for women in technology and, most importantly, that there are role models for them to follow.
For Katre Vahtra, Managing Director at Arvato Financial Solutions Tech Center Tallinn, this day also has a special meaning.
Katre: Since I began my journey in Tech & Data six years ago, I have been able to observe that more and more women are finding their way into technical career fields. At the same time, it is difficult to ignore the fact that the male fraction still strongly dominates. Working in the tech industry is not just about writing code or being a technically inclined person. There are many other ways you can contribute in IT. And that's something we need to highlight on days like this.
