Sylvie Légère is very familiar with corporate America as well as the policy world. She has more than 20 years experience working in technology, process and change management for Accenture, TD Ameritrade and JP Morgan Chase. As co-owner of a bicycle shop outside Chicago, and developer of an app for people with developmental disabilities, she knows the challenges small businesses face. And as a parent, Sylvie feels the pressure all parents do — how do we leave the world a better place for our children?
In answering that question, she’s discovered a passion to help those without a voice find their own and get out of their comfort zone. After personally encountering the unique challenges women face in the policy sphere, she co-founded The Policy Circle to provide women with opportunities to gain the confidence to join the public policy dialogue.
Sylvie earned an undergraduate degree in Management Information Systems from the University of Ottawa, Canada, and a Master’s in Computer Science with a specialization in the Learning Sciences from Northwestern University, in Evanston, Illinois.
