Episode Info

Episode Info: Will the actions you take today have a positive impact on tomorrow’s society? That’s a question that Sandra Lopez, VP of Intel Sports Group asks herself every day. She’s not only creating a new world of sports technology, but she’s also a diversity advocate for women in C-level careers. Sandra was named one of the 50 most powerful women in technology. One of her visions and missions is to educate the world on how to use technology correctly, in a healthy way that uplifts all of society. Overall, Sandra believes that technology creates storytelling platforms for people to truly express themselves. Technology is helping to bring our world forward by sharing knowledge and intelligence with regions that wouldn’t previously have had access to it. But what implication does tech have on our societies? Sandra explains how we can use tech in a healthier way. Sandra wants us all to think about our role in the next level of technology. How do you use technology now? Will you embrace emerging techs? Sanda believes we can all help create a dialogue just by the way that we act and do things. She’s active in bringing more diversity to the boardroom and knows she is helping to pave the way for other women in C level careers.

Being one of the only women at C-level in her current role, and having come through corporate America as a minority, Sanda encourages more women to follow in her footsteps.
