WOMEN IN TECH

Florence Kariuki

Chief Clinical Officer

Why do you think it’s important for more women to join the tech industry?

Women are fully capable of innovating new ideas and/or contributing towards existing solutions, in any industry in the world. We should feel empowered to bring our expertise and transferable skills into the Tech World, just as we do in other industries.

 

What advice would you give yourself just starting out?

Your current limitations do not define your future possibilities. Put your best foot forward at every chance you get, and watch the world open up for you!


What first sparked your interest in working in the tech industry?

The opportunity to leverage my clinical skills and experience to inform the direction and impact of technology in optimizing the care experience.


What is the best professional advice you've ever received? 

Don't try to be everything for everyone. Effective prioritizing means that you will miss some meetings, and ignore some emails.


What is a quote you live by? 

Speak Life! I believe in the power of speaking positively as a fundamental way of shifting my mindset to be optimistic and work towards solutions.


What is your favorite book, podcast or tv show and why? 

My favorite book is the Bible. Reading it keeps me grounded and consistently gives me access to so much invaluable wisdom and guidance. Majority of my life decisions are influenced by principals derived from it.
