9月20日Ladies Who Tech 企业行动第三次活动我们又回到了XNODE众创空间。每一次谈到科技和创新，第一个激动的蹦出来的一定是XNODE的CEO周炜和他的小伙伴们。每一次的场地支持，资源搭建，人脉介绍始终会抢在前面不遗余力的为我们安排。
20th September, we held the third "Ladies Who Tech in Action" back at XNODE, our long term supporter and partner. Every time when we discuss about innovation and technology, the CEO of XNODE, Wei Zhou, and his colleagues are always the first to stand up and give us a hand.
同样的作为从一开始就支持并参与到Ladies Who Tech行动中来的美国麻省大学阿默斯特分校也再次回归并和我们分享了他们所看到的中国科技教育的现状以及支持女性科技教育的决心。同时UMASS会为Ladies Who Tech有兴趣参与她们明年项目的女学生们提供全额或者部分奖学金，来鼓励更多的女性来学习科技和工程学。
Another long term sponsor and education partner, UMASS, also returned to Ladies Who Tech and updated us on the latest technology and engineering scene in China and what they have achieved in the past 6 months. UMASS offered potential full and partial scholarships to the Ladies Who Tech community as an action to support women in computer science and engineering studies.
既然Charlene是Steve Jobs的超级粉丝，自然会对他的自传耳熟能详。自传里有提到现任苹果集团的CEO Tim Cook在每一次演讲之前都会吃一条能量棒。所以这次加州中心也为每一位带来了yummysanck能量棒，也为我们每一位Ladies Who Tech的出场提供满满的能量！
Charlene has mentioned many times in the biography of Steve Jobs (she's a fan) by Walter Isaacson that all Tim Cook eats are energy bars. So, Califorina Center has offered everyone a delicious energy bar to make sure we are always 100% charged.
当晚我们有90多位科技女性和男士们参与了现场的活动。当晚我们邀请了GapTech大中华区和日本技术副总裁 Kristina Militante ，维多利亚的秘密大中华区技术副总裁Judy Zhu，以及Digitize2grow的创始人Veronique G.Boudaud为大家分享了她们各自的经历和职场经验。
An audience of approximately 90 women techies and HeforShe supporters filled the XNODE, eager to hear from the evening’s successful and inspiring speakers: Kristina Militante – VP, Information Technology at GapTech China and Japan, Judy Zhu – VP, Information Technology at Victoria's Secret Greater China and Veronique G. Boudaud – Founder, Digitize2grow.
While there was not enough time to answer the many questions from both women and men following the professional stories and industry insights shared by the leading ladies, there were no shortage of inspiring innuendos to take home.

"I travelled over 50 countries, I see a lot of people who changed their lives through education. Ladies Who Tech on International Women's Day is also our launch event in China. People write to us to tell us how good the event was and we need to support and understand each other so we will continue to do this. We want women to innovate and succeed." - Christy Ma
我去了50多个国家旅游，见到了很多由于教育而改变人生的人。今年和Ladies Who Tech国际妇女节活动的合作也是美国麻省大学阿默斯特分校进入中国的第一次活动。很多参与活动的朋友们也跟我们反馈说希望多参加这样有意义的活动。所以我们需要互相支持用行动来支持。我们希望看到科技女性们可以创新和成功”。
VP, Information Technology at GapTech China and Japan
“My personal experiences are the stepping stones of who I am today. Words can either damage you or put you in a different place, so it's really up to you how to take words that people say to you, does it bring you up to a higher level, does it take you down.
There are four rules I live by to stop me from beating myself up: be impeccable with your word, don't take anything personally, don't make assumptions, always do your best.
Expect the unexpected because if you expect things you'll only gonna be disappointed.
The path to learning is to make a lot of mistakes. You have the opportunity to keep trying to get it right. Find the right fit for you. " - Kristina Militante
VP, Information Technology at Victoria's Secret Greater China
"There were only 5 women in my EE class, there were 35 guys. Thanks to my IT background, I found a job very quickly. I really admire those people who have passion in their lives, whether it is work or anything you do, you got to love what you do, because passion leads to success, if you don't like what you're doing, find something you truly love, don't for the sake of making money, stick to a job you don't like. Be curious, be open-minded" - Judy Zhu
Veronique G. Boudaud – Founder, Digitize2grow
"My mom is alive, she's 89 years old, she uses Skype to communicate with me, technology runs in the family. Some of the values she force fed on my brother and me include: you learn to be very resilient, you never give up, you are loyal, your name is your brand and your honor.
Guiding a business starting or mature in its digital journey is my purpose, making it succeed is my reward and contribution to the digital transformation of the world." - Veronique G. Boudaud
