SVP, Legal and Standards & Practices, Sprout

Byrd structures and negotiates network agreements and is responsible for corporate governance and policy development. But she also actively fosters diversity in the community. For instance, she’s a committee member for Jack and Jill of America, whose goal is to nurture future leaders, primarily African-American mothers. In May she was honored with the “Women Achieving Award,” by the Philadelphia Tribune and serves as a mentor to WICT’s new class of mentees. Looking ahead, Byrd hopes to see more diversity within decision-making roles. “The industry needs to work to increase the pipeline of candidates available for these types of jobs by hiring candidates that will be on track to all these positions,” she says.
