Pavion’s Women’s History Month series continues with a conversation led by three organizational leaders, Susan Post, Robin Nishiyama, and Kristina VanderBrink

March is Women’s History Month, a time to reflect on and appreciate women’s many contributions to American history. In the telecommunications industry, one woman who plays a pivotal role in advancing telecommunications research is Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson, a theoretical physicist and famous black inventor whose career helped push science and technology forward. To change the paradigm of women in business and pave the way for a brighter future, it’s leaders like Dr. Jackson that America needs to inspire others.

Leading system’s integrator, Pavion, is honoring women, like Dr. Jackson, in their March series dedicated to Women’s History Month by highlighting those within their organization who, through their determination, ingenuity, and inspiration, embody the spirit of leadership and are making that brighter future possible.

On this third episode of the series, host Michelle Dawn Mooney brought together three of Pavion’s brightest talents, Susan Post, Chief Strategy & Integration Officer; Robin Nishiyama, Director of Healthcare/Education Solutions, and Kristina VanderBrink, Southeast Regional Sales Director. And while Post, Nishiyama, and VanderBrink haven’t necessarily experienced extreme challenges in their industry as women, Nishiyama noted that clients often welcome a female approach in solutions selling.

Mooney, Post, Nishiyama, and VanderBrink discuss several topics during their conversation, including:

Evolving changes, attitudes, and experiences involving women in the workplace

Technology advancements made by women

Advice for young women thinking about their careers

“I have a daughter at the age where we’re doing college tours right now,” VanderBrink said. “She’s looking at the bioengineering field. And I remember when I was in design school, walking through these universities, it might be one woman in the construction industry and one woman in engineering. You walk through now, and it’s even. There are so many different facets of what we can do.”
