WHY THAT IMAGE?

We have a Women in Software group that meets monthly. In January, we all went to see 'Hidden Figures'. We have a strong continent of women at Quick Left and now that we are part of a large company, our group really helps to keep us connected.

INGRID ALONGI, SENIOR DIRECTOR, MENTOR NETWORK 

What is your role and what do you do in the organization?

I co-founded Quick Left, who was acquired by Cognizant in May 2016. I now work within their internal startup accelerator as the head of the mentor network, where I recruit internal talent to coach the startups while they are in the 6 month program. I am also in charge of recruiting for The Studio, the engineering team responsible for building the products in the accelerator. My title is Senior Director, Mentor Network. I have been with the company 7.5 years total, 10 months with Cognizant.

What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

Having a successful mentor network and meeting more people at Cognizant. Less stress is another thing I'm looking forward to.

What was your favorite course in school that has nothing to do with your profession?

Photography. We even got to develop our own film!
