Following her recognition as the 2017 Women in Technology Woman of the Year for mid-size organizations and educational institutions, Scheller College of Business at Georgia Tech Dean, Maryam Alavi, visited Atlanta-based Business Radio X to discuss the future of technology with three other award winners.

During the one-hour podcast, the panel discussed strategies for both men and women to advance their career in the technology and business sectors, the necessity of adaptability to innovation in a globalized society, and lessons they’ve learned through a life of commitment to their respective fields.

“All leaders must have an entrepreneurial mindset,” Dean Alavi explains when asked about one of the most important leadership qualities. “Increasingly, as a result of constant change, the only way to compete effectively, and the only way to be successful in business and society, is through innovation.”
