Amy is interested in developing breakthrough technologies that create meaningful change in human behavior. She recently joined Amazon on the Alexa New Technology Initiatives team to work on the front lines of the voice-activated world. On the NTI team, she is responsible for creating a new category of connected products that enhance voice interactions and turn Alexa into a hub for interactive play and education.
Outside of work, she is a founding member of wayOUT, a nonprofit working to ensure that LGBTQ+ youth grow up in America feeling safe and empowered to be who they really are. Through a range of fundraising activities and outreach services, wayOUT empowers local organizations to support their lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community.
Diverse representation is a priority for us. We're proud to say that our Summit speakers are 80% queer women, 50% women of color, 25% Black & Latinx, and 15% transgender and gender nonconforming.
