We have to find a way to be successful that doesn’t compromise us as women… When you’re a woman trying to speak and act like a man, you’re expending energy on that while other people are just focusing on the work. If you have to put energy into being someone you’re not just to fit in, you’ll always be at a disadvantage.”
