Description

What can we do to invite more diverse talent into our field? Astera Schneeweisz, Partner and Director of Engineering, Information Security and Compliance at BCG Digital Ventures thinks that celebrating curiosity, cultivating a kind listening ear, and demystifying your field are critical elements of active allyship.

Like many in tech, Astera started their journey by taking things apart and putting them back together. This curiosity led them into the field of cyber security. They began their career at the Austrian internet provider Nessus, eventually going on to be Head of Security at Soundcloud. Astera thinks that the cyber security world has an equitable gender balance, but that there is still more to be done to encourage fresh talent into the field. They also highlight the importance of groups and support networks as a way to feel connected in their work and private life.

Join us every episode with hosts Corin Lines & Suchi Srinivasan from BCG to hear meaningful conversations with women in digital, technology and business.
