BCG presents: In Her Ellement - Growing in Tech with Women Who Code's Alaina Percival
The future of the tech industry depends on women. So how do you grow that tech career, and why is imposter syndrome sometimes a good thing? In this episode, hear from our new podcast series  (In Her Ellement), where AI expert Andrea Gallego and product designer Corin Lines from Boston Consulting Group have honest conversations with women at the vanguard of technology in business, art, education, and more. They're speaking with Alaina Percival, CEO of  (Women Who Code)—the largest and most active community for technical women in the world. Her advice is to continually challenge yourself and elevate your voice and goals—remember that you’re in high demand! Alaina shares her career path; she’s run niche products for Puma in Germany, led developer outreach for a technical recruiting company in San Francisco, and taught herself to code. As the CEO of Women Who Code, she works to inspire women to thrive in the tech industry. Alaina shares how she navigates the always near and dear imposter syndrome; that if you aren’t feeling it—you may have been in your role too long. There should always be 40% that you don’t know. She also emphasizes the importance of community and support; don’t be shy to reach out and share your goals—there is a very accessible and supportive community willing to help.
