Ashmera Mohamed, an R&D Senior Engineer at PepsiCo, shares how building a network with women in STEM has helped her grow her career.
Ashmera Mohamed’s early morning car rides to school in Georgetown, Guyana gave her a glimpse at the STEM career that lay ahead of her. “I would count the number of trucks on the highway and analyze cricket scores with my father,” she says. That impulse to find order in complex systems would help her flourish as she explored a future in engineering. “STEM was always something that was innately a part of me,” Ashmera recalls. “I was always inquisitive and observant growing up.”
