Julie Larson-Green is known for her mantra “people first, technology second”. It is the foundation in her role at Qualtrics as the Chief Experience Officer (CXO) and her position as CXO over many application experiences in 25 years at Microsoft. She believes it is important to create a culture where the best ideas come from everyone. She does this by having an open door and embracing everyone’s individual perspective, personality, style and abilities. At Qualtrics, she is combining universal listening tools with her insights in how to act upon the data and redefine the Experience Management platform which unites employee, product, brand, and customer experiences for companies around the world. Julie advises multiple startup companies, is on the board of Goleadoras, a non-profit that seeks to battle gender disparity by empowering young women and was recently named as a top 'most powerful female engineer' in 2018 by Business Insider.
