“We always seem to view our role models as if they’ve made perfect choices every step of the way. If only that were really true!”

Facebook’s NYC headquarters was packed to the brim Tuesday night with career-minded techies looking to gain insight from a panel of some of the tech industry’s leading ladies. The chat was organized by Girls in Tech, a global organization “focused on the engagement, education and empowerment of powerful, influential women in technology and entrepreneurship,” and was moderated by Kickstarter’s Bethany Sumner. 

The conversation covered everything from mentorship to sexism in the workplace, and left guests with a heap of actionable tips. 

Who was there:

What they said: 

“I didn’t become who I am by accident. I struggled through the whole journey.” -Catherine Hui (Bloomberg) 

“Don’t say ‘no’ out of fear. Say ‘yes’ to yourself. Know that you are worth it and that you can do it.” -Amanda J. Stent (AT&T)

“If you’re playing World of Warcraft 25 hours a week, you’re probably hiding from something in your life.” -Goranka Bjedov (Facebook)

“Make mistakes. Just don’t make the same mistake five times.” -Bjedov

“Until I fail empirically, I am good enough to do the job.”  -Nikki Stevens (formerly Refinery29)

What’s the biggest career mistake you’ve ever made, and how did you overcome it? Looking back, what piece of advice would you give your younger self? Tell us on Twitter with #FCadvice.
