I am an intersectional feminist who uses data and research to advocate for equality and inclusion. I bring over 12 years experience leading change in open source technology communities, including 3 years leading Diversity and Inclusion at Mozilla. My work on trans inclusion was featured in Forbes, my research on digitization ethics is included in Dr. Safiya Noble’s Algorithms of Oppression and an accessibility toolkit I co-authored won an international creative innovation award.
The biggest impacts I’ve made aren’t visible in the public space. I’ve analyzed qualitative and quantitative people data to understand where a company is at and diagnose where the biggest diversity and inclusion issues are. I’ve worked with internal stakeholders to co-design interventions based on research best practices and experience about what actually moves the needle. I’ve worked with people with disabilities to co-design textbooks that are accessible to them from the start. I’m excited to connect DEI strategy across people processes through to core business services and products using inclusive design methodologies.
As someone who is mixed race and queer I know we live intersectional lives. I have firsthand experience knowing what it’s like to navigate systems that were not designed for people like me. Along with my work experience and education, I tap into these experiences to help co-design employee experiences where people feel like they belong and are welcome. This work is deeply personal to me and I feel privileged and a sense of responsibility to do it well.
