Meet Nidhi! Consultant at PureIntegration
What do you do for work and what do you love about it and what is most challenging?
Nidhi: As a PureIntegration Consultant, I recently joined the Customer Experience team at Comcast where I’m specifically focusing on improving and implementing the company’s initiatives on Employee Empowerment. It’s an interesting connection from my previous role in which I deployed Xfinity Internet speed tiers to the markets and had an opportunity to work closely with various teams across work streams such as Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Courtesy Services, CARE and Tech Ops team. In my prior role, I developed an understanding of pain points that some of these teams experience during deployment. In my new role with Employee Empowerment, I actually get the opportunity to address and implement solutions to some of the problems I saw reoccurring, which is really cool!

The most challenging, yet colorful and exciting part, is working on multifaceted programs with cross-functional/co-dependent teams. It’s challenging to attain alignment when there are so many teams involved but it’s a great personal growth opportunity in the sense of learning to map out a program plan while factoring in all the intermediary steps.

How have other women inspired you or helped shape your career?

Nidhi: From an early age, my mom and grandma encouraged my sister and I to be independent, which I think really influenced my self-sufficient outlook as an adult. Almost every woman I know is juggling a career, household and life and so I’m constantly inspired by the women around me (girlfriends, co-workers, and female managers)  who are kicking butt at making their mark in the world.

What is your favorite TV show and/or movie?

Nidhi: THIS IS US! No explanation needed…

What is something that most people don’t know about you?

Nidhi: In the last 13 months, I have traveled to 7 different countries: Netherlands, Dubai, Oman, Tanzania, India, England, and Italy! I love immersing myself in another country and getting lost in the culture, language and lifestyle differences. I find it humbling, grounding and always come back with a different perspective.

What’s your role with WICT? What did you enjoy most about that role?

NidhiFor the past two years, I have served as the Project Manager for Tech It Out Conferences at the Villanova University and as a Communications Chair for Philly Gives Back. Each role has helped me grow as a project/program manager as my roles have evolved. Tech It Out has been particularly near and dear to my heart because it combines my passion for technology and event planning into one. Organizing the 2017 conference on the Internet of Things was so exhilarating as it was such a relevant hot topic that intrigued not only women, but many men to come out to our conference!

Why do you think WICT is important?

Nidhi: I joined WICT a few years ago having completely changed industries with virtually no knowledge in telecommunications, but a passion in technology and WICT helped me channel that passion. Volunteering as a project manager for Tech It Out 2016 was such an eye-opening experience for me. It helped me, as a young professional, test out different leadership strategies, learn how to stay calm under pressure when things inevitably don’t go as planned and really think through a process end to end.
