 January 11, 2023

DXC Technology Chief Information Officer (CIO), Kristie Grinnell, is featured on the Tech in the Right Direction podcast. Kristie discusses her career journey in STEM leadership, provides tangible advice for other ambitious women, reinforces the value of confidence, and highlights the importance of words to open the doors of opportunity.

Speaking with Directions Training President & CEO, Jennifer Didier, Kristie highlighted the importance of choosing the right words, asking key questions to reinforce credibility, being an expert in one's field, and having the confidence to propose new ideas.

"Words matter!" says Kristie. The words used for oneself, or in speaking with others, can certainly open or close doors of opportunity.

"It's important for women to see and hear from other women, and to lift each other up," said Kristie.

Leveraging allies for support was a key theme discussed by Kristie. Furthermore, Kristie covered many aspects that help forge inclusive company cultures.

Each week, Tech in the Right Direction podcast host Jennifer discusses how women can take technology in the right direction to drive social change and close the employment, pay, and culture gap for women in technology.
