Women in Business
After spending a decade working in technology, Randi found herself confronting her own complicated relationship with Silicon Valley. On one hand, celebrating the innovative, entrepreneurial spirit and future-thinking disruption. But on the other hand, left wondering, "where are the women? Where are people of color?"

In her funny, poignant, honest, and authentic talk, she'll discuss her own experiences as a woman on the front lines of tech and her ideas on how we can all work together towards a future where the next multi-billion dollar companies are founded by women.

Our Disrupted World: The New Rules of Engagement
In 2007, Randi had a front row seat to the launch of the iPhone in Silicon Valley and the necessity for every single business to immediately pivot or go extinct. She helped lead her team at Facebook successfully through that massive shift in consumer behavior, launching new products and programs that are now used by more than a billion people around the globe. She is here now, with over a decade of hindsight and analysis, to help guide you through these current tumultuous times. It has become clear that consumer behavior has again shifted abruptly, and meaningfully, creating an opportunity for businesses willing to take the leap. During this program, Randi will take you through some of the most substantial shifts in consumer behavior expected to happen over the next 12-18 months, and how to get ahead of them, rather than be caught off guard.
