Meet the Women’s Impact Network at Siemens Member of the Month, Aly Ryan. She hails from Atlanta, Georgia and has been with Siemens for two and a half years now. She loves the data side of marketing and enjoys turning complex engineering products into straightforward marketing campaigns. WIN@S sat down with Aly to learn more about her experience as a WIN@S member.
How has WIN@S impacted your career/personal development?
The WIN@S has helped me grow my network tremendously and it is a joy to get to work with a diverse group of men and women all focused around the common goal of promoting inclusion, awareness, and the understanding of issues and challenges facing women within the workforce. I’ve met so many people from different parts of the organization (some parts that I didn’t even know existed).
As Communications Chair of WIN@S, I really enjoy applying my marketing skills to a group that stands for something I believe in. This group has taught me the true meaning of inclusivity.
Inclusivity: in·clu·siv·i·ty/ˌinklo͞oˈsivədē/noun : the practice or policy of providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized.
What is your favorite part of being a member of WIN@S?
Do I have to pick one? My favorite part would have to be the people and the events. I have been inspired countless time by the stories and experiences people share about their career journeys within Siemens. I recently helped organize a workshop that focused on generational differences. It was incredibly valuable to learn the different perspectives of generations and how we can work better together.
What would you tell people who are thinking about joining WIN@S?
Do it! It will be a decision you won’t regret. Whether you’ve been with Siemens for one week or thirty years, everyone has something to gain by joining an ERG, especially WIN@S. We are helping shape the future for a better tomorrow with the help of WIN@S members.
