I'm not sure how to answer this question - because the act of answering this question assumes that being a women is the tech space is in a way special - its not. It is uncommon, but it is not special. I would like to believe that I've reached where I have because of my capabilities of not only being the best but also beating others to it. And that is not because I am a woman, its because I'm a good researcher/scientist/engineer.
