Posted: March 6, 2020
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we sat down with Yuki Liew, Senior Manager Sales and Business Development at AVEVA’s Singapore office. Yuki talks about her interest in STEM and what International Women’s Day means to her.
What is your role at AVEVA? How long have you been working in the STEM industry?
My role at AVEVA is in Sales and Business Development at the Singapore office. I’ve spent 18 years in the STEM industry and have over 14 years proven track record on strategic selling in engineering design, digital asset and operation lifecycle management solutions across a range of key industries, including marine & offshore, oil & gas, power & utilities.
When did you first develop an interest in STEM? Who/what inspired you into a career in technology?
I began having an interest in STEM-related subjects during science lessons at school, and while watching a National Geographic documentary during primary school.
I am inspired by how various sectors can improve efficiency through discovery, research and innovation, which I think it always the focal point of a culture centred around movement, advancement and growth.
What is your favourite thing about working in the STEM industry? What is the most rewarding aspect of a STEM-based career?
I really enjoy the opportunity to learn and work with creative and innovative people in technology. There are so many business opportunities with limitless possibility for growth as the industry embarks on digital transformation.
How is AVEVA helping women into STEM? And what do you think can be done to entice more women into this industry?
AVEVA is great at promoting Equality and Diversity in its offices around the world. However, to entice more women into STEM, I think the industry needs to promote role-models of those women who have been successful in the industry.
If you could change one thing to improve diversity in STEM subjects, what would it be?
If I could change one thing I would enhance community building, and ensure that there’s a range of social networks that give women the opportunity to collaborate and innovate together.
What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
I believe that International Women’s Day is a day to feel appreciated and to celebrate the achievements of women, regardless of whether they are a career woman or a homemaker.
