Shani Sandy is a real mover and a shaker in this industry.

But how did she go from freelance work to being a lead at one of the top tech companies in the world? Find out in this week’s interview!
Shani and I spoke about design thinking and what IBM looks for from designers, and she gave some great advice for designers who are looking to take their career to the next level and advance into bigger and greater roles. We also talked about building teams, diversity in tech and design, hiring and recruiting, and a lot more. The key to Shani’s success has been carving out your own lane, and I think this week’s interview really shows she’s done a phenomenal job doing just that!
