Rochelle King and Steve Johnson are colleagues, allies and true work BFF’s. Although both Steve and Rochelle have worked in the User Experience industry for close to 20 years working for some of the most influential names in Technology including; Spotify, Adobe, Intuit, LinkedIn, and Netflix, they are no strangers to feeling a bit different. Leading a creative organization can sometimes be a lonely job, especially if you feel like you are a minority representing creativity in a company that indexes toward Technology and Engineering.
Now both with Netflix, Rochelle and Steve celebrate the opportunity to work together as they not only support, challenge, and push each other to be their best, but for the first time in their careers, they have a partner who understands the personal challenges and difficulties of being a minority and person of color in the technology industry. We’ll talk about our journey together, and how joining forces has made all the difference in our ability to learn, teach and share with one another.
