Stephanie Smith

After graduating from Oxford University, Stephanie began her professional career at a rapidly growing technology company (Applied Predictive Technologies, APT) delivering analytics software and consulting engagements to Fortune 500s.

Fast forward 5 years, and she has rapidly moved up through the organization, was selected as APT’s first global ambassador to spend one year training in Washington D.C., and most recently promoted into a role at Mastercard (who acquired APT). Stephanie is particularly passionate about diversity & inclusion and solving social problems, and has experience delivering projects and technologies that drive a lasting social impact. For example, Stephanie led a pro bono project in partnership with the city government of New Orleans and a non-profit, that pioneered how APT applies data assets and technology to facilitate and measure inclusive growth. Stephanie also proactively took on new projects in social-impact oriented industries (for example, applying Test & Learn analytics to education), and co-led APT’s global Women’s Leadership Network (a business resource group to connect female leaders and build a more inclusive workplace). She has also demonstrated herself as an outstanding people manager and mentor of junior staff. Outside of work, Stephanie has volunteered time as a mentor with the Girls Network in London, and fundraising with Girls on the Run in Washington D.C.
