A product design leader, Audrey has experience building and scaling design teams from the ground up, pivoting design and product strategies to deliver more value for users, helping Fortune 100 companies (including Starbucks, IBM, and Deloitte) bring their ideas to life in both physical and digital form as interactive experiences. Audrey is also an established public speaker who has presented on topics of design leadership, building empathy for users, and connecting teams to the purpose of their work.
In her current role as a VP of Design at Lyft, Audrey leads the design teams responsible for the core user experiences across our rider, driver, and enterprise offerings. Outside of work, Audrey is a mom of two rambunctious kids who do their best to keep her on her toes.
From a global pandemic to an economic rollercoaster to a society embroiled in unrest, 2020 packed a punch. It also packed roughly 10 years of leadership lessons into a matter of months. Audrey will talk through those lessons and reflect on what it means to lead through extreme uncertainty in an industry that was one of the hardest hit by COVID.
Andy will take your questions for Audrey and Lola.
