Carmen Maria Parrino

1. What is the best advice ever received?

“Life is lived forward and understood backward”. A wonderful sentence for me, because the past and therefore all our experiences are infinitely important to shape the future – “the forward”.

2. What gets you out of bed every morning?

The opportunity to design and just be. My industry – mobility – currently offers an infinite number of possibilities for participation and design, both small and large.  And of course there are wonderful people in my environment – professionally or privately, who inspire and motivate me every single day!

3. What are your next milestones?

To see many women in leadership positions and to work with them. I want diversity to be a matter in every respect, that’s what I stand for and I will drive it forward.

4. What is your best analog moment?

Again and again the moment when online becomes offline. I like the short, concise exchange in the digital world, but the analog world is irreplaceable. Especially for emotional people like me!
