Cindy Gross is an Adaptive Community Leader & founder of Befriending Dragons. She nurtures equitable tech cultures where everyone thrives and belongs. That starts with a foundation where workplace bullies and harassers are not tolerated.
Cindy has met many scary dragons in her life – breast cancer, divorce, a layoff, changing roles and technologies, workplace harassment as a Microsoft woman in tech, constant striving to meet some impossible to meet bar for success, and the idea that we always have to put work first. Most recently she left the corporate world to strike out on her own, into a rich community filled with people who create justice, meaning, allies, and dreams.
