Katherine Maver IBM Senior Managing Consultant

IBM places a great deal of value on diversity in its workforce, ultimately enabling and encouraging people to be who they are. IBM knows and understands the importance of creating an inclusive and welcoming environment to allow employees to be their true selves and to be proud of who they are. As a transgender woman in a predominately male-dominated industry, IBM’s inclusive work environment has given me the freedom to be myself and allowed me to progress my career.  Some of the opportunities that I have been given in the past year have been travelling for my job, working in different countries and speaking at a Global conference.  As one of the largest IT and consulting company in the world, opportunities at IBM are limitless.
