Abstract:
Ash Coleman is currently working as an Engineering Manager in Quality in Silicon Valley, but her journey there is less than linear. She has been known in the community to raise difficult conversations about the many "others" that the field has stumbled on for years. From her forward approach to Diversity within Engineering and professional spaces, to her past as a Culinarily trained Chef before having switched careers, Ash speaks about all of that and every in between. Creating trainings, workshops, actionable process changes, crafting documents, coaching, and lending support, Ash is on a quest to find the way to a better working space that is accessible to herself and all of the other "others" that are interested and looking for belonging in Engineering.
If you find yourself wondering how you yourself fit into your role, how to include others who lack or are struggling with feeling a sense of belonging in your org, are interested in diversity and inclusion, gender equality, LBGTQ inquiries, or more tactical topics such as agile diversity, diversity transformation, testing, and career switching, let's have a chat!
