What Gotara Members Say About our Advice

Our mission at Gotara is to offer career advice and support to women in STEM +, whether they’re just landing their first job or striving for mid- or senior career advancement. Here’s a recent Gotara member success story.

THE SITUATION

After graduating with a degree in Industrial engineering, I started my first job and needed guidance on how to succeed in a large organization.

OUR ADVICE

One of the Gotara advisors mentored me and shared words of wisdom that helped me navigate my way. She encouraged me to seek out projects that will broaden my skills and to learn everything I can from my peers. Whether that was process improvement, data analysis or doc writing and presentations, she inspired me to reflect on what I’ve learned and apply it to my future. I will carry this mindset of continuous learning and self-development with me throughout my career.

Leah’s OUTCOME

Gotara’s advisor helped me secure my first promotion and a new role at my company. She has been an excellent mentor and I am excited to be a part of the Gotara career advice network and experience the women empowerment and knowledge this great team offers.

GLORIA COX, senior partner at Cambridge

GLORIA COX, senior partner at Cambridge

Blazing trails is bred in the bone for Gloria Cox. Her parents were part of that great migration of Black Americans who left the oppression of the South for opportunities in northern cities such as Chicago. But even in more enlightened times, she knew she was “the other” growing up in the Chicagoland suburb of Glen Ellyn. “In my high school class of 491 students, only three were Black.” It was a similar ratio at Indiana University, Bloomington, where she studied telecommunications. “I met one woman during orientation who had never met a Black person,” recounts Gloria in our premiere REACH REPORT. “I tell women of color that they have a superpower. They have resilience and an ability to see the other—even though the other may not see them.” Cox’s superpowers helped her and top posts such as executive vice president of Client Services at Nielsen. Today, she’s a senior partner at Cambridge, a management consulting firm.
