The women of Atlantic BT run the world.
They are leaders, doers, creators, and visionaries.
They are daughters, sisters, partners, and moms.
They are managers, developers, accountants, researchers, writers, artists, and strategists.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we celebrate the team of women whose contributions help shape the work and culture that make up Atlantic BT. In their own words, they share what their experience means to them and champion the work of women here and around the world.
” When you think of a strong woman, who do you think of? For me, the first person who comes to mind is probably Beyoncé. Each lady at ABT is a Beyoncé in her own right.”
–Maris Hall, UX Desinger
“The ladies of ABT know how to work and play hard. From running a meeting to running the trails, we’re always pushing the limits.”
– Erin Rabatin, Project Manager
“Something I say often is HTFU, which a lot of ladies do here. They are tough as nails and I wouldn’t mess with any of them.”
–Jessica Altvater, QA Analyst
“Each lady here is like one of those magical automatic doors at Target. Everything she has to offer inside is pure genius and she’s always open to give insight, go the extra mile, or lend a helping hand.”
–Rachel McKay, Office Administrator
“In the world of CQS, our ladies are always a 10”
–Kate Geisler, Project Manager
“Whether it’s at Reading Between the Wines or in the Cellar, the ladies of ABT know how to have a good time.”

–Ria Manglani, .Net Developer
“I am continually inspired by the women I work with; by their intelligence and kindness, talent and work ethic. They empower me to be better at what I do inside the office and out. Today, I celebrate them and all that they have accomplished and the incredible things that are in store because we are lucky enough to have them.”
– Lorelei Canne, Content Strategist
“While women are a minority in our industry, we are mighty. The ladies of ABT prove everyday why women kick ass; we are strong, smart, driven, and chock-full of talent that will change the world. Get on board or get out of our way!”
–Townsley Minton, Senior Account Executive
“I think it’s an important time in our country. As women, we have the power and influence to invoke change. It’s not just today. I get the pleasure of seeing it every day. I get to work with some of the most brilliant, amazing, talented women in our industry. These women support our community and through their knowledge continue to eliminate the gender stereotypes. It makes me proud to be a woman and gives me great hope that my daughters will have the chance to fulfill their dreams, whatever they may be.”
–Eileen Allen, VP Strategy
“ABT women would make the Women’s Rights Movement proud as we are a group of women who are strong, supportive, encouraging, diverse, and accepting of one another as equals.”
–Amy Sullivan, Project Manager
“Every woman at ABT is a trailblazer in her own right. Each day she writes another inspiring chapter of HERstory in history as we move closer to gender equality in our industry. #PressForProgress.”
– Yolanda Hyman, QA Manager
(We wanted to get a quote from Project Manager Andrea Osborn, but she was too busy raising the next generation of feminists.)
Happy International Women’s Day! We look forward to all of the great things the future has in store.
