Terra Terwilliger


Terra came to diversity and inclusion after a 20-year career in technology where she saw it all, from out-and-out bro-dom to the more subtle, systemic issues that rewarded one very narrow way of being and discounted all other kinds of experience. She spent the past several years at Stanford's Clayman Institute for Gender Research—now known as the VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab—where she led the Corporate Program. The program fosters partnerships between world-class academics and leading practitioners of D&I to use social science research to create meaningful, sustainable change.

After leaving Clayman, Terra sensed a thirst in the market for an information service that would give corporate leaders the latest research, best practices, and actionable tools they need to make diversity a reality. Thus D&I In Practice was born. 

Terra holds a BA from Stanford University and an MBA from UC-Berkeley.
