Why did you pick a career in master data?

I kind of just fell into my role at Abercrombie & Fitch after college, but I decided to stay in the industry because I realized how passionate I am about data – particularly data that helps provide better customer service and experiences.

 

What do you like most about your job?

Supporting customers and solving problems.

 

What do you see as the biggest barriers for more women in the master data field?

I think many women just lack an interest in pursuing a technology-related degree.

 

What advice would you give to a woman considering a career in master data?

You can do this! Stay curious and ask a lot of questions.


Never be afraid to challenge ideas around what somebody may consider best practice. Our field is still evolving, and we need critical thinkers out there to challenge us and ensure we are evolving and growing.

 

Does your organization work to promote gender equity? If so, how?

Yes. Our company does not tolerate gender inequity. We are launching more initiatives as our company continues to grow. Currently, we have a group of women at Infoverity that has set up a mentoring network within our company which has been a huge help.
