Feb 20, 2019

In this episode, Alison Wade and Jessie Shternshus chat with Ingrid Alongi, a Women Who Leads. Ingrid is the founder of Quick Left, a web engineering company, which was acquired by Cognizant in 2016. Ingrid is now the head of Mentor Network at Cognizant Accelerator in Boulder, Colorado. Her focus is on hiring for the team in North America as well as on people and culture. Ingrid is also an accomplished athlete, particularly in track cycling, where she holds a handful of national titles and was on the US Cycling team in the early 1990s. Here, you’ll hear some amazing insights about how Ingrid fine-tuned Cognizant's hiring practices to help get a more diverse group applying for roles, and how that helped her get the right people in place for a successful business.
