Female STEM students looking to forge successful careers in tech.

What Alexis does

Director, Digital User Experience

Rising through roles at BlackRock, Alexis now manages a variety of global tech teams, ensuring focus with daily stand-ups, connection via digital conferences, and support with whatever tools they need. A founder of BlackRock’s OUT network, Alexis is excited to be with a future-facing firm, both culturally and technically, as they experiment with AI, biometrics, and VR headsets.

"BlackRock’s culture is very accepting—it’s a great place to be from a diversity perspective. As a lesbian, I feel very comfortable being out and appreciated for who I am in the company environment."

"BlackRock has a major focus on technology. I don’t feel like a tech person at a finance firm—I feel like a tech person at a technology company who happens to do finance. It’s exciting."
