CEO: stop making women work harder – Business Insider. Warrior is NEXTEV Chief Development Officer & US CEO
Previously: Chief Technology & Strategy Officer of Cisco, Chief Technology Officer in Motorola –
After 30 years in the tech industry, most recently as Cisco’s chief strategy officer where she orchestrated deals like Cisco’s new partnership with Apple, Padmasree Warrior is the quintessential diplomatic.
She came up the ranks first as an engineer, then a CTO, and just landed the US CEO role at a highly watched electric vehicle startup NextEV.
Smart, articulate, and poised, Warrior rarely says anything that could be considered controversial or offensive.
But if you want to see her eyes glow and her tongue get sharp, just ask her about how women engineers are still struggling to find acceptance in the tech industry, particularly in the Valley.
… “We have to be careful that we don’t think that women have to do more in order to be recognized.”
… “The data says that many women start their careers in the tech industry. They leave after a few years because they don’t find the environment is fostering or inclusive,” Warrior says.
