CAMP NJ March Power Hour
Please join us on Thursday, March 1st as Shaheena Arshad-Trijillo leads a discussion on how to thrive in an environment of continuous company re-organization.
Shaheena's full bio:
Shaheena Arshad-Trijillo has a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering as well as a diploma in Network Engineering. After graduating, she used the background of her degrees to work as a Management Engineer for the NY/NJ Port Authority. Shaheena then moved to MCIWorldcom where she was heavily involved in process development along with her engineering duties on the network side. Based on her performance, MCIWorldcom sent Shaheena to London to start the group’s European counterpart. Due to that opportunity, she was able to combine her educational and Port Authority background with Networking. Since joining Comcast, Shaheena has actively tried her best to highlight inefficient processes and offer solutions to streamline them. She has done so during her time as a Network Engineer, a Manager/Senior Manager in Network Engineering, and now as Director of Operations Engineering. Shaheena's group has over the last two years developed an Operational Readiness/Model to ensure that all new products/services that they deliver to their customers meet their expectations. This has become the standard across the Enterprise.
Shaheena's main work for the community has been giving back to South Asian women in NJ. Since 2001, she has been an advocate for women experiencing domestic violence. Her duties include working with several women in depth throughout their issues, helping them set up new lives (job hunt, apartments, utilities), and accompanying them to court for support. This experience taught her when working with people to understand their backgrounds and viewpoints and respect that they wouldn’t necessarily align with her own. Working with these remarkable women taught Shaheena the value of just listening and leading by empathy and presence.
