About the Speakers
Gayle Keller is an award-winning seasoned technology executive who learned to become a risk taker at heart as she has successfully and professionally reinvented herself many times to assume higher level positions in the male-dominated tech industry. As an executive, she experienced firsthand how woman struggle to excel and how men struggle to understand and cohesively work together with women.
From her own work experiences and a strong personal calling to empower women to succeed without leaving men behind, Keller launched her own firm, Gayle Keller LLC, to be a powerful force in the revitalization of gender inclusivity in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) industries. Keller’s built-in company bonus is to be a positive role model to her two young girls and do her part in the world to build an inclusive culture of all genders in all sectors of STEAM.
Keller is hailed for her leadership, hands-on programs and direct approach to shift the paradigm and culture of organizations through her keynotes, presentations, advisory services, coaching programs and soon-to-be published book, Theodora Speaks.
