Podcast Description – In the podcast titled ‘Women in technology’, our guest Hailey Yoon speaks about her experiences as a women entrepreneur and the challenges she faced along the journey. She says that women try to be perfect at everything, but it is ok to be not perfect. After so many years, she still feels that her voice is not heard by men, that she was interrupted in the middle of the sentence by a fellow male colleague. She advises all women always to hold their ground and speak up for themselves and never allow their voice to drown, especially when challenged by a male counterpart.
