Denise Lombard, Board of Advisors  

BayOne announces the appointment of Denise Lombard to the Board of Advisors. BayOne strongly believes in recruiting and empowering women and doing its bit to bridge the gender gap in tech.

Since 2019 BayOne has been running the #MakeTechPurple initiative to bring more women into the tech workforce through re-skilling cohorts, webinars, and meetups. 

BayOne founder Rahul Sharma welcomes Denise Lombard with this message, “Denise is a dynamic and innovative leader with extensive global experience. We’ve invited her to our Board of Advisors to further guide our company in our mission to advance gender diversity in the workforce. We look forward to a great partnership built on common goals of advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion.” 

In her role as the Director of Supplier Diversity, Risk & Ethics, Global Procurement Services at Cisco, Denise was responsible for Cisco’s supplier diversity program, where she provided development opportunities for women, minority, veteran, and disabled veteran-owned businesses. In her sixteen years with Cisco, she led teams through transformations across several business functions, all adding to her breadth of knowledge in the industry. In addition, she is highly passionate about giving back to the community. Her advocacy includes being a Court Appointed Special Advocate for Maricopa County’s CASA organization to provide critical advocacy for children in foster care that have been abused, neglected, or abandoned. She co-led the San Jose Connected Women’s Community Outreach Pillar, which is focused on helping young women toward STEM careers, and she worked closely with Girl Scouts and Citizens Schools.
