Group Leaders help our community by leading and engaging with their group members and hosting meetups or events to bring together members of our community socially or to share knowledge.
We’re excited to have Shelley helping us out with our Womxn in Product group!
Get to know Shelley
Shelley is the Group Product Manager at ThoughtExchange and also leads the Product Design Team. She is naturally curious and highly empathic, both of which help her understand users and find ways to help them do things better. Shelley spent the last 10 years in various Product roles in a Canadian healthcare technology company. When she is not working, she can often be found outdoors hiking in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia.
Why did you want to get involved as a Group Leader?
I was fortunate enough to have an incredible female mentor in a previous organization. She helped me grow, not just professionally, but personally. I would love to be able to do similar for other women around me as well as learn about challenges and successes that other women in Product have faced.
Where do you hope to contribute?
I am a very digitally social person and believe I can encourage conversation in Womxn in Product. Nobody gets through life alone, and having other women facing similar experiences can only benefit all of us.
