To follow up our sponsorship of the WoMENAIT event and to celebrate women's history month, we're putting the spotlight on some of FUTEK's talented female team members. First out are Mahsa Sharafi, torque engineer, and Sepideh Rahmatinia, electrical engineer.

We all dream of having a successful career in a field we're passionate about. But some of us have to leave our home and everything we know in order to pursue it. Mahsa Sharafi and Sepideh Rahmatinia talk about what it's like to be a woman in such a male-dominated field, both in their native Iran and the US, how to deal with bias, and what they want to give back to the next generation of tech-loving girls.
