As a metrics-driven diversity strategist, Dr. Williams brings her expertise in delivering exceptional cross-functional outcomes across the organizations she leads and advises. 

“The Siteimprove team is thrilled to welcome Dr. Williams to the Board of Directors, with her impressive background of developing diverse and inclusive cultures and leadership accountability across global enterprise organizations,” said Shane Paladin, CEO of Siteimprove. “Siteimprove’s core ethos is built around building an accessible Internet for all and her counsel will be invaluable as we continue to deliver upon that goal, both externally and internally.”
