Bio

Rebecca Woodmass (they/them), a trained classical soprano, is a non-binary lesbian now working in tech. For the last two years they have immersed themself in the tech sector, co-leading the Montreal chapter of Lesbians Who Tech (& Allies) to be one of the most active chapters in their global network. They founded QueeriT, a social good web design and development enterprise by and for queers (and those who love us). Rebecca is now applying their talents in speaking, writing, and programming to their studies in applied machine learning and artificial intelligence for social change as a founding employee of AI startup Crescendo. They have been called a "rising star in the queer/feminist movement" and works tirelessly for the visibility of racialized, disabled, queer and trans folks in the tech sector, as well as in society at large. They love cycling, writing poetry, gardening, and their cat, Didi.

Skills

 

Inclusion Consulting, Training, and Speaking

 Building an inclusive organization is essential. Beyond productivity and revenue, studies show that millenials consider inclusion to be non-negotiable. Making a safe space for everyone to be “out” as their full, complex selves, increases diversity of thought, creativity, empathy, and team rapport. Identity and life experience matters just as much as skills and work experience. I take a no-nonsense, direct approach to organizational and structural change. To bring me in to maximize inclusivity in your organization, or to speak at your conference, contact me.
