Join us in the BreakLine Arena for a conversation with Jennifer Tejada, CEO, and Joe Militello, CPO of PagerDuty, the Saas incident response platform.
Both Jennifer and Joe walked unconventional paths toward Pagerduty. Jennifer, a woman of color and a member of a military family, grew up in CPG selling “peanut butter and diapers” before transitioning into the tech sector. Joe served in the Marine Corps infantry before jumping to a career in human resources. They drew from their personal and professional experiences to discuss the enormous advantage of a unique perspective and a beginner’s mind.
Jen said, “By definition, the tech industry is not particularly diverse, and I think we have been successful because of the fact that we are intentional about inclusive leadership, because we bring people from different, racial, ethnic, gender, age, and vocational backgrounds, and it helps us understand problems through a variety of lenses.”
Jen and Joe also share with the BreakLine Arena PagerDuty’s recent conversation about vision and mission, character, and the importance of committing to shared values.
