Karen Catlin

Keynote Speaker: Advocate for Inclusive Workplaces, Coach, Speaker & Author

Karen Catlin Biography

After spending twenty-five years building software products and serving as a vice president of engineering at Adobe, Karen Catlin witnessed a sharp decline in the number of women working in tech. Frustrated but galvanized, she knew it was time to switch gears.

Today, Karen is a leadership coach and an acclaimed author and speaker on inclusive workplaces. She is a highly sought-after and engaging presenter who has delivered talks at more than a hundred events. In addition to speaking herself, Karen is determined to bring more diversity to speaker lineups at tech industry events. To support this goal, she coauthored “Present! A Techie's Guide to Public Speaking”.

In 2014, Karen started the Twitter handle @betterallies to share simple, actionable steps that anyone can take to make their workplace more inclusive. That Twitter handle became the inspiration for books, “Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces” and “The Better Allies Approach to Hiring”.
