[Ep 109] Bringing Women to the Forefront in Tech
Talk with Tiana Sanchez
Some of the biggest advancements in tech are made by women, but the field has remained a boys’ club. In this episode of Like A Real Boss, Trina Martin explains what can be done from both sides to give women more opportunities in tech.
Trina L. Martin is an author, speaker, technology consultant, and podcaster. She uses her experiences to motivate audiences to overcome adversity, develop self-determination, and discipline. Trina also inspires emerging leaders to pursue their wildest dreams with heart and grit. An accomplished I.T. professional and member of the U.S. military for 30 years, she has broken barriers and made strides in her career that many said weren’t possible.
Naturally skilled at finding the harmony between technology, science, and data, she has led a stellar career in the Information Technology field. As an Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Navy, a Cyber Intelligence Analyst for the FBI, and now as the owner of her technology agency, Trina has pierced the glass ceiling and excelled in positions typically held by men.
Throughout Trina’s career, the common denominator has been her ability to set goals and not only achieve but surpass them. Self-motivation, discipline, and hard work are the driving forces that helped her design a life and career that defied the odds stacked against her.
As a speaker, she takes a refreshingly honest and relatable approach to teach student leaders, professionals, and women how to develop the confidence they need to do the same.
