"It is truly the best job in the world," says Shay Gillespie of her role as the Business Development Manager, Central Division at World Wide Technology (WWT). "I manage the diversity strategy for our central region division… [and] I'm blessed to meet with clients across several industries. I research and understand their needs, which gives me the ability to drive opportunities for 70+ client managers within my region."

Adding to Gillespie's love of her role, is the great job WWT does in supporting parents like her. "At WWT, you feel like it's more than a company," she tells us.
