C2 Theme:
Sukhinder Singh Cassidy's approach to being an entrepreneur and tech industry collaborator can be conveniently summed up in the name of her ChoosePossibility project. A seasoned speaker and angel investor, Sukhinder founded theBoardlist, a curated talent marketplace for the tech community to discover and connect highly qualified women leaders with opportunities to serve on company boards. The launch of theBoardlist came hot on the heels of her challenging open letter, “Tech Women Choose Possibility,” championing gender diversity as a proven means of elevating company performance. Thousands of female leaders in the tech community have since joined the peer-to-peer platform. While Sukhinder got her start in investment banking at Merrill Lynch in New York and London, a move to Silicon Valley shifted her leadership acumen into consumer internet and media executive roles at companies such as Google, Amazon and the public company she co-founded, Yodlee. Merging her passions for entrepreneurship, tech and fashion, she founded video e-commerce platform and lifestyle company JOYUS, and continues her leadership commitment as board chairman.
“This is about access to talent, not about filling some quotas.”
