As each of us navigate through our careers, we are each shaping our own personal brand — whether we are intentional, or not. And most of us focus very little effort on developing our personal brand. Women at Aurora will discuss how to create and develop your own personal brand – from how you show up in meetings at work to what you say on social media to the decisions you make as your move your career forward. “Building Your Brand: How to accelerate your career and increase your impact” features women leaders from teams across the company. Each speaker has found her own way of carving out relevant areas of expertise, reinventing her brand over time, and ultimately building a meaningful career with impact.

Special welcome from Aurora CEO and Co-Founder Chris Urmson.
Aurora works at the intersection of rigorous engineering and applied machine learning to address one of the most challenging, important and interesting opportunities of our generation: transforming the way people and goods move. Our mission is to deliver the benefits of self-driving technology safely, quickly, and broadly. We will deliver on our mission with the Aurora Driver, a platform that brings together our software, hardware, and data services to operate, as the driver, across vehicle makes and models, from the largest tractor-trailer or passenger bus to small cars and anything else that drives on the roads. Founded by three of the world’s leaders in the self-driving vehicle industry — Chris Urmson, Sterling Anderson, and Drew Bagnell — Aurora has offices and tests its vehicles in Palo Alto, San Francisco, and Pittsburgh.
