Holmes led Microsoft’s executive program for inclusive product innovation. Now at Google, Holmes continues to advance inclusion for some of the most influential technologies in the world. Her new book, Mismatch, sets a foundation for why designing with excluded communities is more important than ever and drives better solutions for everyone.
