Mariela Mengozzi

Product Engineering Supervisor, Caterpillar
Attended: From Specialist to Strategist

"After attending the Smith program, I took a more active role in my organization. My more fully developed leadership skills have allowed me to feel more confident and have moved me from being the Product Engineering Supervisor to being a leader within my organization. The safe space fostered by Smith, allowed strong women to share experiences, interests, strengths, and weaknesses. The female talent I observed was awe-inspiring and has helped me realize our potential in the business world. I have developed a network of people that both want me to succeed and can help me achieve success.”
