Michelle Mederos is a Product Designer at Facebook, where she currently works on Mentorship. Prior to Mentorship, Michelle has designed for many of Facebook’s social impact products, including crisis response tools and fundraisers. She also helped found the Women in Emerging Markets team, which helps women safely engage on the platform, so that they may feel just as confident and empowered to reap the benefits that Facebook has to offer as their male counterparts.
Before Facebook, she worked at Metromile and Volkswagen, where she envisioned future trends in driving and car ownership. Michelle earned her B.S. in Product Design from Stanford University, and has returned to her alma mater to teach and lecture at the d.school.
