In 2015 I was featured in Tech.co as "One of 8 VCs Making Waves" and in 2016 was named as one of "26 great people spearheading change in tech investment" by Silicon Republic. In the not for profit space I sit on the Boards of the Center for Talent Innovation and International House, New York. At Columbia University, School of International and Public Affairs I am an Adjunct Professor and member of the Management and Gender & Public Policy Faculties.
