Her experience as an HR business partner, UX designer and product manager provides her with a unique and holistic understanding of the way equity and inclusion intersect through every facet of an organization. Through her Inclusive Design Podcast, she explores ways in which responsibleinnovation creates a better world for everyone.
Sabrina believes that change requires our ability to self reflect, contemplate colonial thought, and imagine alternative, liberated futures. She is a wanna-be dog mom and hobby experimenter, energized by science fiction, travel adventures, and a good cup of decaf coffee.
