Since joining the company Esther has played a key role in helping to inspire and grow the number of women that become involved in the app economy. She is also the executive sponsor for Women at Apple where she touts the importance of diversity in the workforce and creating unique programs for youth, women and budding entrepreneurs from backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in technology.
