As a woman, I can say that Palo Alto Networks has excellent employees of both genders, and I work daily with other great female developers, product managers, and quality engineers. Although I think some women may feel intimidated to work in technology, they shouldn't. The atmosphere here is very empowering for women, and I've never felt like I was a minority.I hope more women join this company because I'd like everyone to be able to experience the same positive environment and perks as I do. Although I wasn't one of the three winners chosen to receive a cash prize, as a finalist, I was fortunate to be granted interviews with several members of the Palo Alto Networks team. I flew home, and a few weeks later, I received a formal offer for an internship! Since coming to America, I've seen that what makes us great is the diversity of thought and ability to surround ourselves with people from all walks of life and learn from each other, regardless of caste, color, or creed. It is only by doing this that we "frogs" can see beyond our wells and truly understand the world. That's the power of an ENG.
