Colette D’Alessandro

Women in Identity is a not-for-profit enterprise run by volunteers to champion diversity and inclusion in our sector. Our membership extends across the globe, representing all genders and none, all races, ages, abilities and backgrounds. Our common purpose is to create a more diverse workforce across the industry, ensuring that identity solutions built FOR everyone will be built BY everyone. Working with partners, sponsors and other industry bodies, we will strive to reduce the bias inherent in current identity products, making them truly representative of the markets they intend to serve.
