If you've been to the Tampa Bay area in recent years, you've probably noticed the significant tech industry expansion taking place in the Channel District. It's an exciting time to be a part of the scene, and Rapid7 is smack in the middle. Being active in the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce is incredibly rewarding. I've personally been involved with the Chamber for more than a year, and I've witnessed first-hand their commitment to making Tampa Bay a vibrant, inclusive place to do business.

My next adventure with the Chamber involves becoming a part of its Leadership Tampa program — one of the oldest leadership programs in the country — which fulfills a mission to highlight the strengths of the Tampa Bay region and impact the community through various organized projects. Our 52-person group will also be collaborating with local not-for-profits to create strength in numbers.

We will continue building upon the diversity and inclusion efforts driven by previous Leadership Tampa members, as well as focus on the challenges of transportation, affordable housing, and inflation, among others. I'm looking forward to the many conversations and activities we will undertake as part of this initiative.
