Breaking Barriers and Leading with Purpose with Andrea Markstrom and Tia Hopkins

About the Episode

Since its emergence in 1911, every year on March 8, we celebrate International Women's Day to recognize the inspiring contributions that women have made in the professional and personal lives of those around them.

In this episode, Erin McLean talks to Tia Hopkins and Andrea Markstrom, the Chief Information Officer at Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP and Founder of i.WILL, about their career journeys in cybersecurity, how they empower and support women, and the foundations they've started.

Key takeaways of the episode include:

  • Why there's no single, linear path into cybersecurity or leadership roles in technology
  • The importance of mentorship and networking for growth
  • Their commitment to lifting as they climb through their involvement with the i.WILL and Black Women in Cyber Collective foundations
  • How to find your voice and make a mark in your field
