Established in 2018, TransformHER was founded by LinkedIn’s Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging team and employee resource groups rooted in the following themes, “Up-Level Self, Industry, & Society.” Through their annual conference and online forum, LinkedIn aims to create a network of women who can share ideas and resources to transform their careers.
TransformHER is noted as a premier conference that’s dedicated to presenting a forum for professional Black & Latina women in technology with hopes to build stronger relationships and leverage resources to advance. Their key objectives are to invest in the community among professional women in color in technology, focus on solutions while providing resources for growth, and up-level women of color in person. TransformHER conference co-founder, Tyrona “Ty” Heath, Global Lead, Market Development at LinkedIn wanted to equip women of color with the tools, soft skills and resources they need to further their careers while also empowering them to have the tough conversations that will begin to crack the double glass ceiling that women of color often face within the tech industry.
Conference attendees were able to gain a better understanding of how the tech world sees the advancement of women of color and how that will continue to be shaped in the future while having access to a network of powerful influencers within the tech realm to generate effective change for the marginalized community.
“At LinkedIn, we have a mission of connecting the world’s professionals to opportunity, and we really mean every professional. TransformHER is designed to bring together women of color and allies in tech to unlock their potential and overcome obstacles through a commitment to action on topics that impact our community. In 2019, we’re focusing on topics like building your brand, managing challenging work cultures, entrepreneurship and more. I’m grateful we’re able to host attendees and leverage the power of LinkedIn for these important conversations!” –Tyrona Heath
