Originally from Placentia, California, William Adams went from the Barrio to Microsoft. He's funny, unstoppable and committed to equity in tech. He co-founded Microsoft's LEAP Apprenticeship program, increasing the percentage of women and people of color in tech. Just don't try to put him in narrow categories. Raised in a Chicano community, married to an East Indian and a practicing Muslim. What brings it all together? His huge heart.
Favorite movie: The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. And his favorite song is U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."
Favorite words: "If you're not on the steamroller, you're part of the road."
