Kim Vo ’98, SM ’99, a corporate vice president at Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), joined the semiconductor industry for three reasons. “First, it’s extremely cool technology; it’s cutting edge. The second is all the products we create: they touch everyone,” she recently said in a talk at MIT. “And the third reason is because just like at MIT, I get to work with some of the world’s smartest people.”
Vo revealed her motivation during her keynote presentation at the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) Women’s Leadership Initiative networking event, co-sponsored by MIT.nano and hosted at MIT on April 6.
