I’m confident in my skills and achievements. I want to be recognized on a level playing field. I am comfortable competing with men for jobs or for recognition. I don’t want to be selected for something based on my gender because of someone’s requirement to recognize more females…But let’s face it, women are underrepresented in our field.
