Leveling The Playing Field: Bärí A. Williams, Former Head Of Operations North America for StubHub

This week, Bobbi-Sue Doyle-Hazard talks with Bärí A. Williams, the former head of operations for North America for StubHub. Bärí is a business, technology, and startup attorney in California. She has worked in a variety of industries including risk management, insurance, advocacy, sports, and financial technology.

She is a 2015 recipient of the National Bar Association’s “40 Under 40” award, recognizing young attorneys excelling in achievement, innovation, vision, leadership and legal community involvement in their careers, as well as their “Excellence in Legal Innovation” award, and a 2015 recipient of the Digital Diversity Network’s “Top 40 Under 40: Tech Diversity” award.

Bärí and Bobbi-Sue have a great conversation that starts with some “This is Us” and Super Bowl chit-chat. They then delve into Bärí’s career and her continued advocacy and work on diversity and inclusion in technology. Bärí tells a lot of stories about her parents and grandparents and how she keeps her privilege in check by thinking back to them.
