Ingrid is the Executive Director of Diversity by Doing (DxD), a healthtech initiative supported by Stanford Biodesign and Fogarty Innovation. At DxD her mission is to lead the endeavor of being a transformational force for diversity through efforts that span the pipeline from students interested in health technology to start-up healthtech company operations. She has spent the past 30 years working to help underserved communities succeed in the technology and education industries, and is frequently asked to speak on issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion. Previously, she served as the Executive Director of Base 11, a nonprofit workforce and entrepreneur development company that helps women and minorities succeed in STEM. During her tenure, Ingrid developed partnerships with universities, institutions and corporate sponsors across the country, and built programs to provide advanced technology training. Prior to that, she held leadership roles at several innovative educational technology companies, in both the private and nonprofit sectors. The two things that Ingrid finds most motivating are driving people to STEM careers and seeing the positive impact of those choices. She is a former trustee of the NAACP Foundation, and serves on the boards of Stanford Biodesign, Project Tomorrow, Hines Family Foundation, and Better Days Integrated Programs (Bdips). She holds a BA in communications from California State University Dominguez Hills.
