Carrie Sawyer is the founder of Diversity by Design, a San Diego firm that uses design thinking to help leaders cultivate inclusive environments where teams can do their best work. With almost two decades of experience in human centered design, Carrie launched Diversity by Design after using her people-centered approach to build and implement diversity and inclusion strategies at both Intel and Qualcomm.
