Meet the Team! Jim Pai, Finance Chair

Each week a member of the #JWiT2016 team introduces themselves to tell us how they #DaretoTech. Connect with us!

 

I joined JWiT because…

I believe JWIT will someday become the biggest technology event in the east coast. JWiT is not merely a conference, but a bridge to connect people with the same interest. It is a gateway for women to explore their possibility in the technology world.

What’s more, in my opinion, the most valuable part of MBA experience is to learn from your peers. Throughout the entire preparation of the conference, I will have a chance to exchange great ideas with the board members, and create an awesome experience together! Quoted from the MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., one can accomplish anything when he/she realizes he/she's a part of something bigger. A team of people that share the same conviction can change the world!

 

I #DaretoTech by…

Switching my career into the tech industry!

Having worked at Deloitte for more than 4 years, I was tired of meeting all the deadlines and the bureaucracy procedures. I realized my work although not meaningless, but certainly did not make an impact on improving human’s lives. Seeing all those evolving technology, I know I want to part of that innovation.

Coming from a non-technical background, I don’t have the ability to write codes or design mechanics. However, I can support my team by contributing my knowledge of finance/accounting. The technology community consists not only engineers but also businessmen. As someone with no previous experience in the tech industry, I dare to tech with my passion and vision!
