May 2017: Technology network results in well-suited position

Management information systems major Anna Lidzba is not only tech savvy, but she’s also a servant leader. She landed a job before graduating in the Technology Solutions and Business Strategies Division for software development at AT&T in midtown Atlanta.

Lidzba attributes the experience she gained from Georgia College and the opportunity to attend the Grace Hopper Technology Conference with helping her to acquire the career of her dreams, which she starts in June. Once at AT&T, Lidzba will participate in a development program where she will be either a systems analyst, scrum master or information technology project manager.

“The Grace Hopper Technology Conference was one of the best things to happen to me at GC,” said Lidzba. “It was incredibly inspirational to hear from these leaders and meet fellow women in technology. I’m very thankful for Dr. Goette and the IT Advisory Board for giving me this opportunity.”

She enjoyed being a servant leader at Georgia College where she volunteered as a tutor through the GIVE Center.

“As an MIS major, I love seeing data analysis and statistics,” Lidzba said. “So I loved not only seeing the qualitative impact everyone made, but also the quantitative impression. The GIVE Center is one of a kind that turns passion for philanthropy into a real-life impact.”

She was also a member and president of the GC Chapter of Model U.N.—a worldwide simulation of the United Nations where she learned about and practiced peacekeeping strategies, diplomacy, public speech, international relations and more.

“I enjoyed getting to know people from all over the world with Model U.N.,” she said. “I’m still in touch with many of them.”

Lidzba was part of GC’s first and only all-female MIS team participating in the Association for Information Systems Student Chapter Leadership Conference held in April at the Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. She and her team placed second in the world, No. 1 in the Southeast and No. 1 in Georgia for establishing key metrics of type 2 diabetes and identifying countries at most risk. The team also uncovered global strategies for Merck to expand its business, maximized diabetes support worldwide and possibly helped minimize the impact of type 2 diabetes in the future.

Lidzba’s top three philanthropic values are health, education and economic empowerment.

“Once I start my full-time job, I’m going to serve in an organization that helps minorities and women to learn tech skills,” she said. “This would economically empower them and put more diversity into the technology field.”
