With keen insights and a strategic perspective, Kim Blue helps people align their passions, talents, and values for success.

She has created and executed organizational blueprints for top-flight organizations including ESPN and Microsoft. In October 2020, she joined Zoom as the Global Head of People Experience Partners, where she leads the company’s worldwide team of HR business partners.

Over her career, Kim Blue has earned a reputation as a trusted adviser who is able to motivate leaders to embrace growth, change, diversity, and inclusion to improve themselves and their organizations. Leading Diversity and Inclusion efforts at some of today's top brands, she built a collective understanding that inclusion allows for all perspectives to have a place at the table that is not conditioned by agreement or being like-minded. It’s a skill she developed in her early career as a personal trainer and honed as she has risen through the ranks as an HR professional. Whether she’s consulting one-on-one or leading a training for a room full of people, she is still a coach at her core. Kim believes when diversity and inclusion are part of the culture of any organization, there is the opportunity for them to step beyond the shore of diversity and really explore the ocean that is inclusion. That ocean is filled with so much possibility if we are willing to be vulnerable, humble, and explore.

Kim Blue is a graduate of East Carolina University and Queens University of Charlotte and lives in Atlanta. She is an Executive Board Member at The Black in HR and is active in other not for profit organizations. In her spare time, you’ll usually find her cheering for her son, Avery Ross, from the sideline of a sporting event.

Corporate Culture-Zoom and the Changing Nature of Work and the Workplace
So by now, everyone has heard of Zoom. It has become a buzzword and is included in many of the latest pop culture sayings. Where would we be without “Zoom Bombs”?

Underneath the funny sayings are hard questions about what a healthy and inclusive remote corporate culture looks like. How do you establish and maintain it? What does a future office look like? How can you take care of your employees even if they are not physically present? Global Head of Experience Partners at Zoom, Kim Blue, will discuss the impact Zoom has had during the pandemic, best practices for building and maintaining corporate culture whether it is virtual or in person, and some of the things that Zoom plans to do in the future to continue to be a good & inclusive corporate citizen.

The Power of Mindful Leadership
Global leaders today struggle with how to make decisions that are just and equitable for all employees in the company. How can you balance the need to profit while being mindful of individual needs? And do those two need to be in conflict with each other? In this keynote Kim Blue, the Global Head of People Experience Partners at Zoom reveals how the current climate today necessitates all leaders to practice mindful leadership. Blue will not only give you a definition and examples of how this is the most needed version of leadership but also actionable takeaways for how anyone can be a more mindful leader.
