CHARLOTTE, NC – Alex McGuire, Sheedeh Dorri, and Liz Caron of Cardinal Financial’s engineering team attended an event on September 24 to represent Cardinal as panelists and mentors at the State of Grace – A Celebration of Women in STEAM at the State University of New York at Albany. At the event, women studying science, technology, engineering, and math were able to hear from, interact with, and network with experienced women in the fields they intend to pursue.
The event served as a local version the Grace Hopper Celebration held in Houston, TX, which is the largest gathering of women in tech, featuring 20,000 women from 90 different countries. Both of these events were inspired by and named after Rear Adm. Grace M. Hopper, who was one of the first computer programmers, and a pioneer in developing computer technology. Hopper helped devise the first commercial electronic computer and many other ideas, terms, and tools that we still use today.
Participating in the event served as a great opportunity for three of our Octane® software engineers to represent Cardinal Financial and offer advice and mentorship to the next generation of women in technology.
Congratulations, and thank you to Alex, Sheedeh, and Liz for a job well done!
We started Cardinal Financial with a passion for developing a better mortgage experience. Our proprietary loan origination software, Octane®, is a sure advantage, but we soon found out that revolutionary technology only goes so far without revolutionary people. We place a premium on hiring talented, forward-thinking, entrepreneurial spirits who are committed, not only to reimagining the possibilities of mortgage lending, but to delivering a personal experience to every borrower every time. We take a tremendous amount of pride in our people because they’re what sets us apart from the rest. Our culture is strengthened by self-starters who look forward to coming to work every day and are willing to go the extra mile for their colleagues and their clients. Cardinal Financial is where your career meets your calling. Join us and be a part of something more than mortgage lending.
