Women in Tech is a Hot-Button Trend, but B of A’s Denise Menelly has Been Pushing it for Years

Denise Menelly, the speaker on behalf of our 2014 Top Company for Women in Computing winner, Bank of America, was recently interviewed by BizJournals and had these wise words to share:

“I would say right now, to a woman in tech, the world is your oyster. Every single industry needs computer science.

I constantly tell women two things. 1. Work with each other. People get caught up in believing there is competition, but the stronger relationships you create with women and men, the better off you will be.

2. Feedback – become the kind of person you can give honest feedback to. Young people, especially women, struggle with this. They need to portray that they’re really open to the negative advice.”
