About the Author

I'm Sonya, co-founder of Choir. I lead business development and client services for our conference clients, and developed the algorithm behind the Choir Score. I’m a passionate advocate for increasing representation of women and people of color in business, and also a data nerd. Combining these two passions at Choir is a privilege and a joy.

Some of the highlights of my work experience include serving as CEO of a Broker-Dealer & RIA, being an ESG consultant before ESG was cool, and authoring the acclaimed Do Better Series.
