Women in Digital is proud to present Heather Brunner, Chairwoman and CEO of WP Engine for a fireside style chat on “Building a More Diverse Workplace”.

WP Engine is the world’s leading WordPress digital experience platform that gives companies of all sizes the agility, performance, intelligence, and integrations they need to drive their business forward faster. Their C-suite is 67% female, 29% of their employees identify as a non-white ethnicity, 30% of their employees do not have a college degree and 8% identify as LGBTQ. That diversity didn’t happen by accident! Come along and hear from Heather Brunner as she discusses how the company has developed – and how you can, too.
