Years Served on Junior Board: 2021
A San Francisco Bay Area native, William completed his undergraduate degree at NYU, studying Media, Culture, and Communication. His studies focused on how perception, cultural capital, social interaction, and government policy can all be influenced by the ways in which marginalized communities are represented in mainstream media. After graduating, William spent a year in NBCUniversal’s rotational Page Program and discovered Talent Development in his first rotational assignment, which was the catalyst to his pivot to a career in Human Resources. He has since spent several years in Recruiting Operations, first at travel company Airbnb, then at fintech Better.com, and most recently at the people platform, Gusto. Through his work, he has tried his best to foster an inclusive candidate experience and spearhead initiatives that focus on creating more equitable opportunities for individuals from historically underrepresented communities. Outside of work, William considers himself a film & tv junkie, avid baker, chocolate enthusiast, and advocate for social justice.
