Stephanie Lampkin is the founder and CEO of Blendoor, merit-based matching, a mobile job-matching app that uses a blind recruiting strategy to circumvent unconscious bias and thus facilitate diversity. With a 13-year career in tech spanning companies like Lockheed, Deloitte, Microsoft, and TripAdvisor, she is all too familiar with the difficulties faced when one doesn’t look like the prototypical engineer. Through technology and data, she seeks to reduce bias and challenge the assumption that homogeneous environments are a meritocracy. Stephanie holds a BS in management science and engineering from Stanford University and an MBA from MIT Sloan.
