"I’m also excited for Sherry’s board chair leadership. She leads a large tech organization inside a Fortune 150 company going through digital transformation. That perspective will be really valuable as we chart the course for the tech community and accelerate our impact. She also has an amazing personal story that I hope more young women and professionals will hear and draw inspiration from."
