International Women’s Day 2022 - Celebrating Powerful Women in Tech

At Zscaler, we celebrate diversity every day. We know that we’re stronger when we have input and perspective from people of varied backgrounds, which is why we make representation a priority. We’re proud to celebrate International Women’s Day every year and elevate the voices and stories of the powerful and brilliant women that make Zscaler great.

The theme for International Women’s Day 2022 is #BreaktheBias, which aims to focus on an equitable and inclusive world—free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. This can be particularly challenging for women in technology, as it has historically been a male-dominated field. As far as we’ve come, we know there is still work to be done. Through our employee resource group Women in Zscaler Engage (WIZE), we have built a vibrant community that fosters career growth, mentorship, and networking for women within the company and beyond. 

We asked some of our WIZE community members to reflect on their careers, what makes them most proud to be a woman in tech, and how Zscaler has affected their career trajectory. Here are their responses:

 

“I am proud to be a woman in cybersecurity because…”

“I have seen firsthand how diversity in thought, perspectives and ideas have helped mitigate the ever-changing cyber threat landscape.” - Lauren Wise, Senior Director, Global Executive Advisory

“Cybersecurity knows no gender.” - Bianca Edgar, Senior Marketing Manager, APJ Enterprise

“I want to encourage and empower other women to feel like they can not only join but also be successful in a male-dominated industry.” - Christina Chung, Manager, Sales Development Representative

“It’s fun, it betters the world, and you're constantly learning new technology and solving problems. It’s fun to be in cybersecurity, but it's especially fun to do it at Zscaler.” - Erica Good, Sales Engineer

“It's just such an interesting industry. It’s changing every day and it’s only going in one direction, so we have a unique opportunity at Zscaler not only to work with the fantastic technology but work in such an exciting time for the industry. It will be really exciting to look back in the future and say that we were a part of this era of time that really defined cybersecurity and defined the way businesses were operating.” - Georgia Bell, Regional Sales Manager, Enterprise
