The most primal barrier of entry for women in the field of tech can be the inability to envision a smooth journey to success--whether success is in building a profitable company or in implementing a creative idea. This can only be combated by not letting stereotypes affect your self-confidence.

The biases women are accustomed to hearing clusters under the same umbrella of whether they can do something as well as a man. While most of women aren't here to prove that point to someone else, they are here to simply use our skills as engineers, leaders, and thinkers to optimise the path of our firm.  

It can be helpful to visualise the barriers that surround us as transparent - as if they do not exist. We know the end goal is to create and view a workplace with a lens of ideas and contribution - so why not start with that conviction itself? I firmly believe that boundaries exist in the mind, and once we stop focusing on the gendered barrier, we must have to break to move ahead - where we can be engrossed in pushing the boundaries of technology, entrepreneurship, and most essentially - thought-leadership even further.
