Silicon Valley-based Shivani Govil is VP, Artificial Intelligence & Cognitive Products and we caught up with her to find out about her work, and how she got interested in science and engineering and how various members of her family have inspired and mentored her career.

Govil grew up in a community surrounded by scientists and both her father and sister were a huge source of inspiration. Her father is a well-known scientist in India, and her older sister studied engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Mumbai, who encouraged Govil to pursue engineering.  She credits her husband for helping her and her daughters inspire her in surprising ways. Tune in to find out what Govil has to share.

This is a highlight of a longer conversation with Govil and is part of Season 2 of  our  Women in Science and Tech and is sponsored by Genentech.
