“Spotlight on TV” by Allison Metcalfe, General Manager, LiveRamp TV
The way the TV industry buys, sells and measures television has literally not changed in 70 years – and the industry is in trouble. Google and Facebook want to get their hands on that $80B budget. Learn how LiveRamp got into the TV game for the first time 2 years ago, is leading the charge in terms of changing the industry dramatically for the first time, and how Allison went from Customer Success leadership to being GM of the division.
“Listening to your customers is the first step in creating awesome products” by Tina Arantes, Head of Product, Data Partnerships Products
Every product manager wants to create wildly successful products. One key to success is deeply understanding your customers and their problems. In this talk, Tina will share what she has learned about finding product/market fit (and of course detours) along the way.
“Privacy Compliance” by Eloise Dietz, Software Engineer
How new privacy laws affect building software systems that handle consumer data: A description of some of the lessons we learned as we work to make LiveRamp CCPA compliant.
“My Obsession With Making Builds Easy” by Erin Friesen, Software Engineer
How do you go from destroying an entire build ecosystem to leading the engineering wide initiative to protect and improve that very same system? Erin will discuss how she was pushed to change and grow as an engineer to accomplish this feat. There were mistakes, recoveries and a lot of help along the way.
“The History of Privacy” by Rachel Wolan, VP Product
What is privacy? Rachel will walk through a brief history of the evolution of privacy, discuss what it means to build products intended to protect consumer privacy globally, and the design decisions we make along the way.

LiveRamp is excited to. host our very first Girl Geek Dinner at our San Francisco headquarters on Wednesday, July 17, 2019! We’re bringing together some amazing women from our company to talk about what we’re up to here at LiveRamp, as well as to share their stories and advice about working in a series of lightning talks!
At LiveRamp, we reach solutions by bringing together people with different backgrounds, opinions and experiences. Through this, we are able to foster an inclusive and open environment where new ideas are welcome. We are excited to partner with Girl Geek X for a night of food, drinks and the opportunity to hear from fellow women in the tech community. We can’t wait to see you at LiveRamp!
