Joann Anderson, VP of Engineering at Scoop Technologies, had a unique childhood in that her mother was a programmer so it never seemed abnormal to Joann that she was a woman in a male-dominated industry. Because many women, particularly mothers, haven’t had that experience, Joann has made it a mission to be a model for others.
In a wide-ranging conversation, Joann spoke to Peter about her creative approach to finding the best people for her QA teams, why inclusivity is so integral to workplace culture, and her advice for finding a mentor that you click with. Check out the episode for Joann’s tips for a welcoming, collaborative work environment.
