At SixPivot a big part of our company ethos is giving back to the community and our industry. Faith Rees, our CoFounder and CEO has stepped up to the challenge again this year and is offering her time to help grow our future leaders of tomorrow by once again supporting the Women In Technology Board Readiness program. Faith has been a mentor for the program over the last few years and continues to support this fantastic initiative. Faith herself completed the program in its first year back in 2008, you can check out her then bio Board Profiles 2008 Graduates. Faith has developed her career significantly over the past few years and credits the program for assisting her in her career progression. She is still in contact with a number of the graduates from the first 2008 program as the program also provides significant networking opportunities.
