Charles Nwatu will kick off our Innovation Week lineup with his talk entitled "Leading Innovation."  Dr. Gersie, Inaugural Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion will provide the introduction and framing during our MLK week. 

Charles will share his intrapreneurial experiences and his exciting career that is the result of embracing the entrepreneurial mindset.  The entrepreneurial mindset is all about reframing and initiative.

Charles Nwatu has made a successful career out of embracing an entrepreneurial mindset and diverse perspectives.  Nwatu’s secret is “making a career of building things that weren’t there.”  His presentation will discuss his impactful career focused on developing company infrastructure to protect customer data.  Leading with solutions requires understanding the challenges facing key stakeholders.  Communication, collaboration, and empathy are key to moving creative innovative solutions forward. 

Find out about how Nwatu has made an impact through his Silicon Valley career at LinkedIn, Twilio, Stitch Fix, and now Netflix, as he shares his tips for success.
