How has Lisa’s leadership elevated the position of women in cloud or technology? How has she “paid it forward” to create more opportunities for women growing their careers?

Leadership at Unisys is highly focused on supporting women in tech as well as improving Diversity, Inclusion and Equity in tech. One way Lisa contributes is by introducing recruiters to women in tech ready for their next career move. Another way is by making recommendation for women to join a tech panel as upcoming events. Additionally, Lisa supports programs for women in tech at all stages. It starts with serving on board of Girls Inc. who thrive to support girls to be strong, smart and bold with STEM programs. She also serves on the board for Texas Conference for Women to support women in all stages of their career, and is apart of Employee Resource Groups focused on women in tech.

How has Lisa mentored, championed, and/or supported other women in technology — above, below and at their level?

Lisa supports women in tech with mentorship, sponsorship and supporting many ways to continue learning, such as book clubs, creative coach sessions and extending network connections. One focus is supporting women to go after what you love. Additionally, she is focused on making new connections, sharing ideas, and having mentoring sessions as often as needed.
