Tracie Zenti is one of the smartest women in technology that I’ve ever met.  Her entire career has been working with emerging technology which led her from Hollywood Video where she got her start to companies like IBM, Intel, and Amazon.  She is now at Microsoft where she is the Director of Category Management for Migration for Azure Marketplace.  Marketplaces are completely changing in a great way how companies acquire new software.

We discuss:

Her career journey and how she ended up in technology.

What it’s like to work somewhere that they are doing a 25 year out roadmap.

Mentoring for women and how to get a mentor, which applies to both men and women.

How to effectively network with your peers.

After we finished recording the interview, we were talking about a couple of things including some of the challenges that women in technology have and I really should have brought that up during the recording because what she was sharing was so important for women in particular that I asked if I could start recording again. 

The last 10 minutes of the episode is that conversation. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed chatting with her!

Catch you next time!
