Shira Kates

Shira Kates has worked in tech since 1998, but can sometimes pass for a millennial. She leads design on Yahoo’s ad management platform. Previously, she was a content strategist for Google. She has held a variety of other exciting jobs including running covered-wagon cookout tours in Yellowstone Park. Shira has an MBA in Design Thinking and loves designing experiences that improve life.

You should check out Shira’s talk because she can show you how to run your own design sprints, contribute to product vision without stepping on your project manager’s toes, and win a hackathon, even if you were an English major.
