Tell me about your role. What does a day in your life at Capgemini look like?

I don’t think I have a typical day at work because my client projects have been so diverse. I wear a lot of different hats and have a very diverse skillset. I write code to plug everything in, which is my strong suit, and I am continuing to learn and develop my skills. I have worked on varied projects – ranging from oil and gas to media to retail – and I’ve gotten to create really great products. As a matter of fact, I was watching a conference where one of our clients was talking about the project my team help build for them. It was exciting to hear the company describing the product that Capgemini had developed.

What do you love about working at Capgemini?

Personally, I love Capgemini because they are truly walking the walk and talking the talk. They not only want to be an ethical company, a green company, a leader in diversity and inclusion, but they are also taking the steps to do that and are getting recognized for it. Business changes, and so do companies and Capgemini is leading the way. They have to be open to change with it, and I have found that Capgemini has been making those changes. Professionally, I love the diverse teams that I get to work with and the diverse projects. You are never working on the same thing all the time. I like having a little change from time to time and experiencing the same industry work, but with different fields and different flavors of our diverse clients.

Are you involved with an Employee Resource Group (ERG)?

I joined an ERG shortly after I started at Capgemini. Aside from data science, I also have a graphic design and art background, so communications is my other love. I found that ERG involvement allows me to blend data science and communications together for storyboarding. I served in our CARES Employee Resource Group as the national communications lead for two years, which is an ERG focused on community engagement and environmental sustainability. I currently serve as the national communications lead for OUTfront, our LGBTQIA+ ERG. My involvement has allowed me to build my leadership skills, guidance skills, mentoring skills, and given me networking opportunities with different people every year inside of Capgemini. These connections allow me to leverage not only my own personal growth and career but to also foster mentorships with other non-binary people, transgender people, and women in tech.

What is one of your favorite memories working at Capgemini?

We had a mixer in Austin for one of our holiday parties between Capgemini, Capgemini Invent, and Sogeti and it was one of the best events I have ever been to. We all came to one place for a harvest party and had a pie baking contest, and it was just so fun. It was super awesome to get to meet everyone working for Capgemini who was also living in Austin.

How are you working towards Getting the Future You Want?

Currently, I am also completing my PhD in Data Science. I have been allowed to be flexible to complete my PhD while also working my full-time job at Capgemini. I am extremely happy with Capgemini and my goal is to have the rest of my career inside Capgemini. Capgemini has pathways all the way to retirement: the ability to move up to help people really make Capgemini an industry leader in multiple areas, which they already are. Diversity and inclusion are so valued here, and as a non-binary person that is huge. I hope to one day be one of the first non-binary leaders that Capgemini has.
