Lori Rodriguez

Lori can be found hovering around the intersections of design, technology, neuroscience and the human experience. After thirty plus years in the private sector, she is currently focused on getting more women into STEM and enjoying her role as Chief Digital Advisor for Women in Tech. 


In her prior role as a product executive at Gartner, Lori interviewed over a thousand C-Suite technology leaders. The lack of women in these key technology roles was obvious and stark. Thus began her journey into understanding why there were few women in STEM, did it matter and what we can do about it.
