A little about the guest

After graduating from Standford University with a science, technology, and society degree, Naomi began working for Meta 17 years ago. Over time, she has seen Meta’s products grow from just one to many, including Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp. She has helped build systems around growth, safety and security, social impact tools, and monetization services by centralizing solutions instead of starting them from scratch each time.
