What is your dream job?
My dream job is a position where I can leverage my analytical and technical skills to facilitate business decision making process and bring positive impact to communities. I am a mother to a 5 year old who is very prone to colds and needs certain medications every time he gets cough. I would like to work on research project for asthma patients where I can gather data from different patients, analyze the patterns and build a model to pre-detect symptoms. This will help parents to take precautions in advance.

Tips for Networking Success
Be inspired by the way data is shaping our world – for the better. When we engage in the power of data and analytics, we drive global innovation and women can help lead that change.
SAS is a natural for a leadership role for WIA, and not just because of the software. The company has fostered a culture of nurturing talent and accommodating the demands of family life, from on-campus day care and schooling at our Cary, N.C., campus, to progressive work-from-home and family leave policies across the organization. But we can only provide a stage; the voice must be yours. Join the network here. Together, we can create a resource that provides inspiration and practical learning, a springboard to opportunity, a forum for that voice.
