International Women’s Day 2017: Celebrating the Women at Cohesity
Today, we are celebrating International Women’s Day at Cohesity! For those who are not familiar, IWD is a global day designated to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history from political to social since the early 1900’s.
This year’s theme “Be Bold for Change” conveys a powerful message. The theme resonates not just with the ladies at Cohesity, but Cohesians is all about being BOLD! It starts from our leader as seen in a recent article by Julie Bolt of Business Insider. In a nutshell, Mohit Aron cofounded Nutanix and left his $4 billion company to make his vision a reality. He was bold and believe in his vision. This vision turned into Cohesity, a company that is rapidly growing and achieved triple-digit growth in 2016!
Cohesians will tell you regardless of your role or gender, we all share the same DNA. It’s the ability to believe in yourself and be bold! As part of the IWD celebration, I would like to recognize a few of the women at Cohesity who contribute to the success we have today!
