In today’s workforce of the future, women are embracing innovation to forge their own paths. International Women’s Day celebrates women like Amor Julia Quilez, Security Consulting Manager, Accenture Strategy & Risk in Madrid, Spain, who are leading in the new and harnessing the power of the digital revolution. Below, Quilez shares her thoughts on the importance of being adaptable and innovative to achieve personal and professional success. You can hear more perspectives from other Accenture Security women who are Leading in The New.
The new represents the opportunity to make fantastic things through a connected world—where every day, we see new challenges and opportunities.
Embracing the new means embracing disruption. In an increasingly insecure world, you have to dispense with old ideas and adopt new solutions every week. This is what we tell our clients: See change as an opportunity, not as a problem. It is necessary to be adaptable to changing conditions and innovative solutions.
As an avid flamenco dancer, I see the need to stay in perfect step with my partner, adjusting to the driving and fluctuating rhythms. Likewise, in security, flexibility and versatility play such an important role in a continually evolving environment.
As a dancer—and a security professional—I need to have very adaptive behavior, seeing positive aspects in every change that happens. This attitude makes it possible to better understand clients and their needs. Doing this work also requires a measure of calm and a willingness to seek and embrace ingenuity.
