After spending 25 years building software products and serving as a vice president of engineering at Macromedia and Adobe, Karen Catlin witnessed a sharp decline in the number of women working in tech. Frustrated but galvanized, she knew it was time to switch gears.

Today, Karen is a leadership coach and a highly acclaimed author and speaker on inclusive workplaces. She is the author of three books:  “”Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces,”” “”The Better Allies™ Approach to Hiring,” and “”Present! A Techie’s Guide to Public Speaking.””
