Meet WTM Ambassador Sunny ✨

A photo of Angel, a Black woman with a bun in her head of long black braided hair. She is looking at the camera with a warm smile on her face and her eyes are sparkling.

Sunny Zhu is, in her own words, a 'statistics geek' with over a decade of experience in the tech industry. She currently works as the ESG Data & Analytics Lead at Indeed, in New York and thinks of herself as the bridge that connects data with people.

Sunny is a strong believer that data science is for everyone, and she is passionate about translating complicated data into clear business strategies and execution plans.

As a Women Techmakers Ambassador, a BetterUp certified coach, and POINT Speaker, she is committed to making the field more accessible to women and other underrepresented groups by providing mentorship and being a frequent speaker at data conferences.

When asked what advice she would give to women who are interested in getting into tech, Sunny said: "Who you are is more important than what you do. Your work does not determine your worth. Be the change you want to see in the world!"

Tip before you go...
