How Leaders Build Diverse Teams

Session Abstract

Jodi will take attendees through her personal career journey to highlight the moments that shaped the leader and product expert she is today. Accompanied by anecdotes from Jodi's experiences, like her palm tree analogy and how "hey, how ya doin" shined a bright light on cultural differences, attendees will walk away with strategies for building diverse teams and career advice including:

· Understand what you're trying to build and find the best team to do it

· Own your personal development while coaching others for what's next

· Prioritize diversity – it brings balance to the entire organization, not just product development
