Christiana Taylor ’01
Christiana was recognized as an Inspirational Woman in STEM and Tech.

" Seeing me in my position is just as important to the men in my company as it is to anyone else. I’ve had more than one person on my team tell me they joined Gantri because they thought I was interesting to work with; I’ve ran into the same thing when I interview people. I’ve had interviewees tell me they were intimidated to speak to me but was relieved that I put them at ease. For me that’s important because the next time they run into a woman leader they will expect a positive experience but know they have to show competence."
