“As part of the Code Nation Tech Talk Series, Dr. Patricia Gestoso delivered an engaging and insightful talk on “How Sustainability and Diversity can Boost Company Success” to an audience of over 70 technologists.
Patricia showed us how to leverage diversity and inclusion to uncover new markets, boost innovation, attract and retain talent, and increase reputation.
Patricia was able to link concepts such as sustainability, accessibility, diversity, and ethics with real case studies, making her message relevant and actionable for the attendees. She showed us how ethical and inclusive design can help us bridge the gap between intent and impact. The key take away for me was “Inclusion is a practice, not a certificate”.
Without a doubt, I would recommend Patricia as a keynote speaker as a way to spark conversations in one of the hottest topic areas. She demonstrated the business value of diversity and left us inspired to embrace inclusion in products, services, and the workplace.”
David Muir, Founder & CEO, Code Nation
“Last month, I had attended Women In payments 2022 EMEA Symposium, where Patricia made a presentation. She was focused on diversity, equality and the impact that technology has on our professional careers and lifes.
Her approach to the topics was disruptive and her passion and energy inspired me. She is capable to connect with the audience and is open to share her knowledge creating a network beyond. Thanks Patricia.”
Mª Isolina Preciado, VP – Product Global Cash Management, Banco Santander
“I attended Patricia’s webinar “Mind the Innovation Gap: Identify Untapped Markets with Ethical and Inclusive Product Design”. Her webinar was interactive, engaging, and inviting! She is very knowledgeable and was able to facilitate deep reflection moments with the audience in a non-threatening way. She inspired and motivated us to take small and bold steps to embark ourselves in the inclusive product design journey. I recommend Patricia to any group seeking to motivate and inspire their members to embrace diversity in product design.”
María Luisa Toro Hernández, Assistive Technology Systems Strengthening Global Advisor at Momentum Wheels for Humanity
“I had the pleasure to attend an event in which Patricia made the closing note. Her enthusiasm, energy and passion were contagious. Her knowledge of current matters, especially the understanding of the crossroads we are at with work life balance, tech development and the world as a whole helped guide me in asking myself many interesting questions to improve my well being. Was very insightful.”
