I manage Facebook's employee resource groups making sure everyone has a voice and feels included.
Upholding a Cause and Belief
Day to Day
No day is ever the same. My job is definitely not a 9-to-5 because it involves solving really big problems. You can find me either on the road traveling and talking to people, celebrating cultures, and helping people find their voice; or, I can be on the Facebook campus teaching inclusion and supporting employee activities. I manage all of our employee resource groups that are all structured around identity, so employees can feel like they have a voice and feel included.
