Imagine the possibilities that could come of tapping into two of the most transformational forces in business today: the progression of female senior executives and the exponential power of technology. Julie Coppernoll, corporate vice president, global marketing strategy, at Intel, draws on her impressive experience as a Silicon Valley technology leader and her career-defining four-year stint as technical assistant to Andy Grove, Intel's former chairman of the board to provide an inside look into the challenges and solutions shaping diverse, innovation-driven cultures.

In a new audio lesson available on Giide through MediaVillage, Coppernoll examines how, by harnessing the accelerator effect of female leadership, unveils how advances in artificial intelligence, autonomous computing, edge computing, and the Internet of Things could catapult businesses to more equitable outcomes.

Given that the global march towards more AI-driven solutions has been a journey similar to the advancement of female tech leaders, Coppernoll emphasizes how both emerging leaders and emerging technologies need growth opportunities to thrive. She eloquently highlights that leadership is a learned skill; a combination of nature and nurture. As part of continually strengthening the leadership muscle, Coppernoll advocates a focus on emotional agility. Drawing on the work of renowned psychologist Susan David, Coppernoll explains that emotional agility is a process that enables individuals to navigate life's twists and turns with self-acceptance, clarity, and an open mind. This ritual of self-care creates deeper resilience to overcome any stressors using the 3Cs: curiosity, compassion, and courage.

Coppernoll also emphasizes the strategic importance of community building. For female leaders in particular, it is crucial to go beyond the usual networking and sharing of public information among formal groups. The most meaningful impact occurs through informal tight-knit networks where private information is selectively shared and used to drive decisions and shape business outcomes. She shares an effective six-step guide to creating strong communities of female leaders — a valuable blueprint that brings together the forces of community, technology, and emotional agility.
