WITH INSIGHT: Shellye Archambeau, One of Silicon Valley’s First Female African-American CEOs


Between beliefs and markets, imagination and data, you’ll find Insight. In our dynamic times, adaptation is constant because growth and status quo do not coexist. It is WITH INSIGHT that your vision becomes clearer, learning becomes systematic, understanding is conceivable.

This year, Insight launched the WITH INSIGHT speaker series featuring game changers, innovators and thought-leaders in our world. As global leaders, we are grappling with unprecedented times. Between a global pandemic and political and racial division, the need to talk about human rights as it pertains to the world today has never been more important.

On October 28th, we hosted a fireside chat between Shellye Archambeau, one of Silicon Valley’s first female African-American CEOs, and Insight MD, Deven Parekh. In the discussion, Shellye candidly shares the challenges she faced as a young black woman, wife, and mother, managing her personal and professional responsibilities while climbing the ranks at IBM and subsequently in her role as CEO of MetricStream. This conversation offers a blueprint on how to be a leader and how to achieve both personal and professional goals.
