Female representation in corporate leadership roles has been a widely discussed topic recently. In the last five years, gender representation has improved at every level in the corporate pipeline. Despite this, women still occupy less than a quarter of current C-suite positions. One woman who has proven herself despite this trend is the cofounder and president of AiFi Inc., Ying Zheng.

Ying is one of the premier computer programmers in the world and an accomplished business leader. After stints at both Apple and Google, Zheng used the knowledge and experience she gained in those positions to launch AiFi with fellow co-founder Steve Gu. Her rise in tech has been meteoric. However, the industry remains a challenging arena for females in the U.S. Big Tech companies still have lower female representation than the rest of the U.S. civilian labor force.
