Natalie Inman

Meet Natalie, Delivery Deployment Lead at Microsoft in UK. She loves working in technology and enjoys the way technology can involve a variety of different roles and skills that allow people to do their best work. The advice that she would give to young women interested in STEM is not to be afraid, to follow your heart and mind when it comes to a career in this field. It can bring you so many different experiences and when you are working in an area that interests you, it often doesn't even feel like work. Visit Natalie's profile to learn more. 


We benefit from role models at all stages of our lives. The FabFems Role Model Directory is excited to have more college students joining the directory and recognizing the power they have as role models.
