Quotable

“I don’t know if you’ve seen ‘Hamilton’ the musical, but… I am now in a lot of the rooms where it happened, and I’m tired of being alone in those. I want to have more women there, I want to have more diversity in those rooms… I really do invest in that and make sure that for the rest of my career, I focus on how do we get more women, especially in tech… I think the more extraordinary women you attract, the more Black leaders you have, the more extraordinary Black talent you’ll attract. That virtuous cycle is what we need to kind of feed and accelerate.”
– Comcast evp/chief product and information security officer Noopur Davis during WICT’s Leadership Conference
