It’s a fact that when there’s gender balance at the top, shareholders win. On 2, our society steers women to less-risky jobs: HR vs. corporate finance. Operations vs. trading. Accounting vs. M&A. I say stop it! The next woman you advise, check your bias and tell her to reach as high as she can. Believe it or not, our government is having an impact. Seeing more women in Congress — and seeing our first women-majority state legislature (Go, Nevada!) — has changed the conversation in our government, and that trickles down to the state and local level, and business too!

As a part of my series about strong female finance leaders, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jamie Barnett, a marketing, product, and customer success leader in SaaS, security, and mobile. She serves as chief marketing officer of AI leader AppZen. Prior to that, she was chief customer officer for DevOps monitoring company Scalyr, and before that, chief marketing officer for cloud security leader Netskope. After spending her early career as an investment banker and equity analyst, she held a number of senior marketing and product management positions in high-technology companies. She serves on the board of La Comida and is actively involved with a number of non-profit and social justice initiatives. Jamie earned a Bachelor of Science from UC Berkeley, an MBA from Stanford University, and is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). She is a die-hard Monty Python fan.
