In this edition of the #bowmobold Women’s History Month Blog Series, we feature four fearless bowmo Women – Katya Sapozhinina, Sellers Webb, Lynn Dean and Christina Grillo. These women deliver effective and crucial contributions to the advancement of all divisions of the bowmo Sales, Product, Marketing and Technology Teams.

About The #bowmobold Women’s History Month Blog Series: At bowmo, Inc. we are as much about our people as we are about our product. With that mantra at our core, it comes as no surprise that conversations this March — Women’s History Month, have been about the bold and audacious women that make up much of the bowmo Team. There’s a lot to be said about the value and need for Women in Tech, and the bowmo Women, in particular, break the mold and help evolve both Technology and Human Capital industries. During this Women’s History Month, we celebrate the bowmo Women with a blog series that shares their voices and the core values and experiences of being a woman in Tech.

I value the incredible support I receive from my immigrant women community and I value the opportunity to give back to them and inspire them. I value the impact I have to build products the world needs and wants.

I value the support I get from other women. Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman coined the term “shine theory” and I see that at play amongst women in tech. Culture teaches us to pit ourselves up against each other’s accomplishments. Shine theory is the acknowledgement that when another woman is shining, you’re not in her shadow. The opposite – you’re in her light, and she in yours.

I value the the mentorship I have received from other women in tech and the discernment I’ve witnessed other women execute. I value the history of women in tech. I value the stories.

I value our dedication first and foremost, you don’t get into tech because that’s a career path you’re “supposed to” take. All of us are here because we love our jobs. I also value the sense of community that we have. We are always helping each other out, and looking out for one another. Finally, I love that we all bring something different to the table. It makes for better products and better companies.

I appreciate being a woman in the technology field. I feel it is one of the few fields where the “glass ceiling” is cracking and soon to crumble. Technologists recognize and appreciate a good, analytical mind regardless.
