In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, women are not just participants: they are architects of change, breaking barriers and reshaping the narrative of an industry traditionally dominated by men. As we celebrate International Women’s Day, Oxalis is taking a moment to applaud the significant strides women have made in technology and to recognize the power and potential they bring to the forefront.

From coding to engineering, from data science to cybersecurity, women are excelling in diverse roles and making significant contributions to the advancement of technology. Moreover, women in technology are not simply paving the way for themselves; they are inspiring future generations. What’s truly inspiring is the resilience and power demonstrated by women in the face of longstanding challenges.

The future is bright, with women continuing to make significant strides in technology. By breaking down barriers, they are paving the way for a more inclusive and equitable industry. This International Women’s Day and special month, let’s not only celebrate how far we’ve come but also commit to supporting and empowering women in technology as they continue to shape the future of innovation.

Oxalis: Forging a Gender-Equal Future in IT

Here at Oxalis, we take immense pride in our dedicated team of women who have consistently contributed their expertise and passion over the years, and who have been instrumental in our growth and success.

Here’s what some of our team members had to say:

“I’m proud that the culture that we’re building at Oxalis supports and values the contributions of women. As a member of the leadership team, I know that we set the tone for the company. We want women to feel appreciated, heard, and trusted, and we will always do our best to help foster that culture.” — Mindi Orth – Director of Operations

“From being an intern to now, at Oxalis I’ve always felt very supported by all my managers. They’ve encouraged me to explore my interests and given me opportunities to grow to find where I best fit. I don’t think I could’ve found a better company to support me in the start of my career.” — Sana Dadi – Business Operations Administrator

“At Oxalis, I’ve found something different. It’s a place where ALL opinions are heard and valued. It’s a company that celebrates differences and the contributions of women, because our leadership, and everyone who works here, knows that we are better — as a business and as people — when we all have a voice and when we all matter.” — Melissa Case, Head of Marketing

“I feel truly proud of the women at Oxalis. It is exciting to be part of a multicultural team where every opinion is heard, and you can feel open to contribute.” — Blanca Vázquez, Marketing Specialist

“I am very proud of the impact you can make with Oxalis, both internally and externally. I love walking away from a project closure knowing we have improved the lives of our customers in some way. This success is further celebrated internally when we share common practices and continue the progress on future efforts as a delivery team.” — Mary Sullivan, Consultant 

” I love having a team of people who are enthusiastically collaborative, happy to help, and who consistently drive you to be your best. Even though we are all fully remote, I don’t feel distant from my team since they are so welcoming, personable, and ready to hop on a call quick to tackle work. Plus we are constantly sharing cute pet photos, and who doesn’t love that.” — Jamie Biesinger, Sr. Solutions Consultant

Emelinda Daly

Emelinda Daly, a Technical Specialist who joined Oxalis in 2016, has contributed in innumerable ways, not the least of which is conducting initial and ongoing configurations for all Oxalis Ship Repair Service (OSRS) Jira environments. Her involvement began with the initial requirement gathering for Vigor Industrial—a shipyard in the Pacific Northwest—leading to the implementation of Jira and their adoption of Oxalis Advanced Estimation.

Emy also played a key role in creating the integration with the Navy Maintenance Database, a significant selling point for OSRS. Furthermore, Emelinda serves as a systems administrator for our OSRS environments on AWS, Windows, and Azure. She also functions as a systems administrator and technical specialist for Atlassian cloud migrations, including the first major migration for Cambia!

This International Women’s Day let’s not just celebrate how far we’ve come, but commit to supporting, empowering, and investing in women in technology as they continue to shape the future of innovation.
