Diversity & Inclusion
On this special edition of The Uplow’d, we celebrate International Women’s Day with 84.51° Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Terron Wilson. Terron brings us up to speed on all the efforts to maintain 84.51°’s culture of Diversity and Inclusion through programs that not only educate and create awareness, but affect real change. Besides being the right thing to do, we’ll learn about why this is so important for a data science organization, and also how it impacts our bottom line.
As the architect of 84.51°’s D&I roadmap, Terron is responsible for developing and executing strategies to ensure the company maintains its culture of diversity and inclusion. With more than 25 years of professional experience, Terron has been with 84.51° since 2008, spending over 10 years on the Customer Communications team as a Campaign Manager and Partnership Manager. She was a founding member of 84.51°’s Insightful Inclusion Council in 2016, and is on the board of directors for the non-profit professional group, Women in the Marketplace.
