I’m a big believer in the phrase “you can’t be what you can’t see” – in fact, I think I’m going to have some t-shirts made…. but that’s not the point of this post!
Growing up, I never stopped for a moment to think how fortunate I was to have a mum who smashed gender stereotypes, worked in fields where women were few and far between, introduced me to the awesomeness of computers, processes and logic and generally gave me the encouragement, and the tools I needed, to be whatever I wanted to be. I was, and still am, extremely lucky to have been blessed with a strong, intelligent, technical and influential woman standing right in front of me every day. I can be anything, because I saw my mum be anything.
So in the spirit of celebrating women in my field, and doing my bit to make sure these women are ‘seen’ by the up and coming girls in tech, I’m proud to present my “We can see you” series – starting with the incredible Samantha Batchelor, an effervescent Tableau evangelist based in Auckland, New Zealand, who I’ve been fortunate enough to spend time with at a number of Tableau conferences over the years!
