WOMEN: GENDER DIVERSITY AND EQUALITY


From curious child to technology leader, hooked on making an impact

By Ambe Tierro, Senior Managing Director, Accenture Technology, Manila

 

Growing up in Manila in the '80s, personal computers were rare and expensive. But not having a computer only increased its appeal for curious 13-year-old me.

After my first school computer code compiled, ran and did what I programmed it to do, I was hooked. Imagine being able to use your knowledge and skills to help people improve their jobs and help society.

I have been working in technology for more than two decades now. The whole time, technology continues to change. I’m very happy to be a part of this dynamic and exciting industry and to be able to use technology to make an impact on society.
