Ep #117: How Women Leaders are Changing the Face of Tech with Maxim Cramer

💡 Did you know:

Voice recognition is 70% more accurate for male voices?

(If you’ve ever struggled to get your Alexa’s attention, this may be why.)

This is just one example of the tech issues that gets my dear friend and colleague, Maxim Cramer, out of bed every morning.

As she describes in this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer:

“Technology is trained on male data. They’re the default. This is why it’s imperative that women play a huge role in creating technology for the future.”

Maxim is a corporate badass and the founder and CEO of MENNENIA, a company dedicated to eradicating barriers for women in tech.

She’s helped brilliant women leaders create technology that addresses some of the most important issues our world is facing today, including:

📱 Sustainability

📱 Domestic violence

📱 And sexual assault

In this episode, Maxim and I break down what it means to be a woman in tech AND we dive into Maxim’s mission to make technology more accessible while also bringing more women to the leadership table.
