Maritza Diaz, Chief Executive Officer of ITJ, joins the Women Who Code panel called “Women Inspire Women.” Alongside talented CEO Cristina de la Peña and Senior Manager María Jiménez, they share their professional experience as Mexican women in IT.
Since launching in 2011, Women Who Code has been an international non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring women to pursue technology and programming careers. They have created the most fantastic community and a job board to help girls and women worldwide prosper in the IT industry. They envision a world where women are proportionally represented as technical leaders, executives, founders, VCs, board members, and software engineers.
Since their launch of the Mexico City edition in 2015, Women Who Code has been representing Mexican women’s interests in technology, generating the most significant impact, promoting gender equality, and helping women reach their full professional potential.
This year’s panel shared the conversation with three women leaders in IT, and ITJ’s CEO, Maritza Diaz, was one of them. By responding to questions such as: How can we get more women into technology? What advice would you give to other women to help them progress in this industry? What’s a leadership lesson that you’ve learned that’s unique to being a female leader? The three women offered their points of view based on their professional and personal experiences to encourage and motivate other girls and women who have similar goals.
Over the past seven years, Maritza has established herself as a thought leader in the software industry’s cross-border collaboration. One of her goals is to achieve full gender equality in her company with a 50-50 employee gender ratio. The same stands out as a beacon of hope for women who pursue careers in technology and programming. Maritza’s remarkable strength is an encouragement to everybody. We are sure that her dreams are closer than ever to becoming a reality.
