Lindsay Verstegen has been helping people in the tech spaces - from early days Groupon to early days and then later days Braintree and Venmo (eventually acquired by PayPal) and now at ShopRunner. At ShopRunner she leads the people team with special care towards creating the very best place to work in everywhere employees are. She and her team have spearheaded various initiatives developed to create a place where diversity can thrive. She’s always fiercely advocated for women and underrepresented folks inside and outside of the workplace, but ever since her first son was born in April 2016, her quest has been emboldened to shift the scales toward equality. Now as part of an executive leadership team that walks the walk while also talking the talk about diverse and inclusive workplaces, she feels she has the unique opportunity to be the change she wants to see in the world.
