Unapologetically Ambitious: A Discussion on Talent & Diversity


CEOs the world over agree that there is a talent shortage. A high growth sector like edge computing needs to capitalize upon all available talent to maximize its pace & achieve its potential. But how?

There’s no one better to answer that question than Shellye Archambeau. Her new book, ”Unapologetically Ambitious,” is the inspiring story of how a woman of color beat the odds and became a Silicon Valley CEO. She now sits on the Board of four major companies – Verizon Communications Inc., Nordstrom Inc., Roper Technologies Inc., and Okta Inc. She was the first woman of color appointed to the Okta board, adding another “first” to a career that has been marked by being the first woman, woman of color, or person of color to achieve a given position.

In conversation with leading tech analyst Maribel Lopez, Shellye will discuss her own experiences, lessons learned, the challenges of our time, and why she believes that there’s never been a better time for female tech entrepreneurs.
