Renée uses her voice to help inform and inspire UX professionals and the next generation of researchers, while also helping underrepresented communities learn about Design as a career and how to become leaders in the UX industry.

She is an active Board Member with two non-profits in the California Bay Area, as well as an advisor to several startups. Always adorned in one of her many signature headwraps, in 2020 Renee launched her popular podcast, Tech Wrap Queen, helping to amplify Black voices throughout Tech, Design and Culture through dynamic conversations that inform and inspire.
