Claudia Brind-Woody is the Vice President & Managing Director for Global Intellectual Property Licensing at IBM. She’s worked at IBM since the 1990s, and she has spent her tenure there emphasizing how fostering an inclusive corporate work environment is good for business – and spurs positive societal change.

“When our employees don’t have to think twice about struggling for the same benefits and recognition… then productivity goes up,” she told Business Insider in 2016.

Brind-Woody believes successful business units are in many ways similar to winning sports teams, and that when leaders create space for each contributor’s unique talents, a team can be greater than the sum of its parts. She credits this insight to the time she spent as an assistant to legendary Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt.

“That focus on individual’s talents, and playing to each person’s strengths, has been so amazingly effective.”

A Virginia native, Brind-Woody lives in England with her wife, Tracie.
