Rachel Williams

Rachel Williams is the first Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion at StubHub where she will focus her efforts on the company’s workforce, workplace, and marketplace to drive inclusion. She is developing unique programming to help StubHub build a culture of openness and belonging that embraces diversity as a dimension of excellence.

Prior to joining StubHub, Rachel was the Head of Diversity & Inclusion at Yelp for the past three years.

The foundation of her mission is simple: Great ideas come from all types of people with all types of experiences. Therefore, she believes that just like great ideas have no boundaries, nor should an employee’s experience.

Prior to Yelp, Rachel held several talent acquisition roles at ClearSlide, SolarCity, and Peet’s Coffee & Tea, and also served as an executive search consultant for venture capitalists. As such, she has a wealth of expertise in recruitment, organizational development, and strategic change activities.

Roe v. Wade Has Been Overturned. You Have Every Right to Be Upset. Here’s how to take action

We at AnitaB.org, are disheartened and dismayed by the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a landmark ruling that enabled the right of an abortion to people around the nation. AnitaB.org brings together allies and champions across every sector to advance intersectional gender equity in technology. The technologists we support are also people impacted by targeted oppressive and unjust laws including laws that restrict reproductive rights. Not only do we empower technologists through our year-long programming but, we also advocate for better systemic solutions for the workforce and for their humanity. 

In response to the Supreme Court ruling, we are joining to elevate the calls to action of our social justice colleagues and community partners. 

If you feel called to do something today or in the next coming days, here are some action steps:  

  • Support and donate to Repro Legal Defense Fund, which is a national organization that covers bail and funds strong defense for people who are investigated, arrested, or prosecuted for abortion. Because no one should be behind bars for ending their pregnancy or helping someone else do so.
  • Support and donate to Plan C, an educational resource for learning about how people in the US access abortion pills.
  • Support and donate to your local Planned Parenthood, independent abortion clinics, and abortion funds.
  • Go to the streets and join a protest near you. Most protests are happening today at 5 PM at the federal courthouses or state capitols.

AnitaB.org is also launching a political advocacy series, Power to the People, with our first event on July 20th. The first event of this series, Power to People: Abortion Rights and Digital Privacy, will elevate the voices of abortion advocates and the risks emerging with digital rights and privacy. This event will empower you to take additional action regarding abortion rights and data privacy. Stay tuned for more information about this upcoming event.
