With COVID-19 a lot of company budgets have been impacted and D&I tends to be on the cutting block. This is very detrimental to not only the future of the workforce, but to the future of the company. Especially with everything going on right now with Black Lives Matter, it is important, now more than ever before, to focus on D&I. We need to make sure we are holding our companies and ourselves accountable to not only talk about D&I, but to be actively advocating for more equity in the workplace.

In this chat you will walk away with:

  • Tips for advocating for more equity in the workplace
  • What steps you can take to empower underrepresented colleagues

As an award-winning, Director of Product and Platform Engineering I have an extensive background with progressive roles leading and supporting the creation of innovative, consumer facing products, improving product and brand performance in global markets while generating millions in new business revenue for global companies.

Throughout my career, my analytical skills as an engineer have combined with my passion to create a world where technology can empower everyone to thrive, championing the customer. This drive for tech began when I got my first computer at age 5, a Commodore 64. I learned to code in 3 months at a boot camp after college and the love affair began.

My leadership style is empowering and collaborative, bringing others along through communicating technical solutions clearly and easily, even for non-techies. I provide mentoring and lead all diversity and inclusion efforts, demonstrated by founding Women@Siri and launching the Tile mentorship program, which gained 67% participation.
