The 2021 Women Leaders in Technology: Sonal Naik

Excellence in Innovation

Sonal Naik says she is honored and proud that women leaders in technology are being recognized for their unique contributions. “It is crucial to raise awareness of the accomplishments of talented women not only to support their cause but to support the next generation of girls interested in STEM. You often hear ‘you can’t be, what you can’t see’ and that’s unfortunately still true when it comes to STEM talent. Despite progress, the leadership ranks in technology – and in consulting – are dominated by men. As technology accelerates forward, women will be instrumental in bringing an important perspective to the development and use of technology. It is critical that we increase the number of women in the room, especially the number of Black and Brown women because diverse perspectives can help overcome groupthink, leading to more robust systems. But that talent won’t just magically appear – we must nurture and encourage the pipeline. The visibility created by award programs like this creates a ripple effect inspiring the next-gen of women leaders.”
