Meet Cornelia Davis: Pivotal’s Role Model For Women In Cloud

Pivotal, with its mission to transform how the world builds software, attracts some of the best and brightest talent across the world. This week, our own Cornelia Davis, director of platform engineering for Pivotal Cloud Foundry, was recognized as one of the “Top 10 Women in Cloud” by CloudNOW, a non-profit consortium of women in cloud computing. Not only is she at the top of her game in the industry, she is also a mother, a self described foodie, and in the past couple years has turned into a tremendous advocate for greater diversity and inclusion in software, a problem that the industry is growing to recognize with software leaders like bravely sharing its surprise at the inequality in pay, and of course this week’s popular story about the sexist reactions to an ad sparked the #ILookLikeAnEngineer campaign. We are sharing her story to both recognize her achievements and in hopes that her example will breed other role models across the industry—because, in her words, “no one can do this alone.”
