Gender Equality, Inclusion, and Digital Development

I’m an expert at the intersection of gender equality, digital inclusion, and digital development at the World Bank Group. My focus is on shifting systems and power in ways that center those who are underrepresented. I advise multi-million dollar technology projects around the world on practical ways to make their designs more inclusive.  Before this role, I was at Harvard, UNICEF, the Fletcher School at Tufts, and Mount Holyoke College. I was also a Board Member at Technovation, a tech education non-profit for girls; In my spare time, I'm passionate about interior design, boxing, and yoga.
