Julie Larson Green applied to Microsoft (MSFT) twice before she landed a job at the company. More than 20 years later, she is the Chief Experience Officer. She grew up liking math and science, admiring the women who worked on Apollo 13 and in the computer science field. She didn’t realize math and science were considered “boys things” until she got her job at Microsoft. She was the only woman on many of her teams and eventually became the first woman to lead a team of engineers. Listen to this week’s episode of our Fortune Unfiltered podcast to hear her views on diversity, tech in the fashion industry, and the importance of thinking outside the box.
