ROXY NDEBUMADUGirls in STEAM Committee
Roxy Ndebumadu is a founder, technology leader, and elected-official known for being a bad-ass, game-changing, AI and cyber security enthusiast, who is making waves and redefining what it means to be an innovative professional powerhouse in today’s quickly changing world.
Through her work at Microsoft, Roxy has been instrumental in redefining how tech is used both domestically and internationally, spearheading the modernization of cloud businesses and the development of tactical and strategic workstreams. She has taught her teams the value of intentionally leading complex systems focused on human-centered design at unheard of scale. Most known for her work in disruptive innovation with the United States House of Representatives, Safaricom, and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Roxy has become the “Olivia Pope” for Federal Government, Commercial Enterprises, and C-suite executives across the world.
In 2019, Roxy became the youngest female and first African American woman to be voted and sworn into office as a Councilwoman for City of Bowie, District 4 in Maryland, serving a community of 68K constituents. Roxy was recently recognized and appointed by Governor Hogan to the Maryland State Board of Waterworks. A Howard University graduate of Nigerian descent, Roxy has always viewed empathy as the great equalizer that will bring society together. Respected for her resounding voice of reason, her dedication to the empowerment of others, and her technical expertise marketing to underprivileged communities, Roxy was named one of the most powerful women to watch out for in African Diaspora.
Out of viewing her life as a vehicle set to empower others by encouraging them to embrace their most authentic selves, own who they are, and amplify the reach of their individual unique voice, Roxy started Alika Women’s Alliance LLC. With a history of overcoming opposition and successfully challenging limiting beliefs, there is no telling what this passionately driven young woman will tackle next. You can catch her on BBC News, keynoting conferences, or advocating for STEM education in Bowie.
