A list of powerful role models

"There are some powerful role-model female engineers having fabulous careers and creating tech used by millions, if not billions of people everyday. And every year, Business Insider creates this list to give those women a shout out. These are women with engineering backgrounds who are running big business units at important companies, are building impressive up-and-coming technologies, or acting as leaders and role models in the tech communities," said Business Insider, whose list includes 39 women across the engineering industry.

Honouring Amazon's talented female engineer

Amazon's Sandy runs the business and engineering teams for Windows on AWS, VMware on AWS, and the server migration businesses and product management for the Compute Cloud unit. She is also chair of the board for Girls in Tech, an adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley, and advises a number of startups. Before she came to Amazon, Carter was the general manager of Ecosystems and Startups at IBM.

This is not the first time Sandy has been recognised for her successes. She has been named a Forbes Digital Influencer, CNN's Top 10 Most Powerful Women in Tech, and B2B News Network's B2B influencer.

Sandy is also an international speaker who has presented in 80+ countries and is the author of four best-selling business books.

Sandy describes herself as being able to "speak fluent geek, sales, digital, marketing, intrapreneur, client success, and leadership. Having experience in multiple disciplines means understanding, and understanding means fewer missed opportunities." Sandy also loves networking, and asks people to reach out to her any time to "talk entrepreneurship, digital, social, geek, women in technology or changing the world."
