The best advice I can give is to be confident, be collaborative and be the best at what you do. Stay focused on your goal and don’t let people bring you down. There will always be someone who doesn’t think you’re capable of advancing to where you want to be, whether you’re a woman or not. You can’t let that be an excuse. Break down walls and barriers and focus on the end result.
The industry is constantly changing, so you have to be flexible and adaptable. The people who take initiative and come up with creative, outside-of-the-box solutions are those who succeed. If you can do those things, collaborate with others and focus on being solution-oriented, you will have a long career. Also, never think any task is below you. Whatever it takes to get the job completed. Be a team player.
I also recommend making a concerted effort to train someone below you so they can take your position and allow you to move up the ladder.
