Corey Ponder enjoyed policy and politics as a subject, but when terrorist bombs went off near his London classroom while studying abroad, he formally switched majors and left his pre-med courses and M.D. plans behind. He hasn't looked back. 

After holding multiple positions as a Security Analyst with the CIA, including as a quantitative methodologist and Liaison Officer, he left government service for the corporate world. As noted, he's worked at Google, Facebook and Meta Platforms, including a stint in Facebook's Privacy Program Management.

In addition to working with Silicon Valley heavyweights, he also owns and runs his own social impact company, em|PACT, helping organizations build inclusive communities by prioritizing empathy as a skillset.
