Angela Roseboro is striving to be the best agent of change that she can be. The Global Head of Diversity at Dropbox shared the details of her transition from the financial world to that of tech in a must-read profile with Forbes. In it, we found so many gems — from the difference between finance and tech spaces to what millennials will bring to the diversity table as they continue to enter and influence the workforce.
She’s used strategies from her other career transitions and the ability to adapt to make the change to tech seamlessly. But one thing she’s noticed from the world of tech is that there’s a much faster pace at which things move.
And although the conversations around making diversity and inclusion cornerstones of business feel new, Roseboro wants it to be known that D&I have been present for quite a while.
“I think it feels new because we are talking about it more publicly,” she said.
In general, Roseboro has noticed that employees are curious about how the leaders of their companies feel about both social and political issues. The culture is moving in a direction where open, honest conversations about these important topics are happening.
“This generation knows what’s important to them…They aren’t afraid to speak up,” said Roseboro, “I love that! My job is to make sure their voices are heard.”
