Leanne Waldal

Head of Research
Dropbox

Leanne (@lwaldal) is Head of Research at Dropbox where she leads a team of 20 researchers who do quantitative and qualitative research for product and design and marketing. Before Dropbox she spent many years running a research consulting company, and worked for a few startups. Directly out of college she worked for McCaw Cellular and AT&T Wireless (she belonged to LEAGUE at AT&T — the first LGBT ERG at a corporation). Her first computer was an Ohio Scientific with a wooden case and a cassette drive and 8MB and a monochrome monitor (she hoped the future would have computers with color and more storage space).

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.
