Ellen Sasson is a veteran of the enterprise software and automotive industry, having grown up with IBM, SAP, Microsoft and Salesforce. A native Detroiter and former leader of the Automotive Women’s Alliance Foundation (AWAF), Ellen has a unique perspective on hardware and software and the auto industry’s transition from making products to creating mobility. The world is crying out for change in the way we treat the environment, the way we treat each other, and the freedom and flexibility to go, do, and be in ways we never have before. It is this incredible moment in time where we get to re-invent mobility and our careers. To that end, Ellen is an advocate for women in software, urbanization, climate protection, and mobility business transformation. She has an MBA in Organization Change and Technology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and a BA in International Relations from Tufts University.
