Standing at the front line of this change — and Waymo’s future — is Tekedra Mawakana, the company’s chief operating officer. Starting in october, Mawakana will join our virtual theatre at TC Sessions: Mobility. The virtual happening, which will highlight the best and brightest sentiments in mobility, will occur over 2 day on October 6 and October 7.
Mawakana will join us to discuss Waymo, the business case of autonomous vehicles, as well as her vocation route, plans for the future and know-how as an angel investor.
As COO, Mawakana supervises business policy, actions, business development, global public policy, public liaisons, market, communications and corporate social responsibility.
In short, Mawakana is the person behind Waymo who moves things happen.

Mawakana is already deep into that duty. She was responsible for the launch of Waymo’s first business busines, Waymo One, in December 2018.
Mawakana is also a social impact-focused angel investor and suffices on the Board of Industry Leaders for the Consumer Technology Association, and as a are part of the Executive Committee on the board of Saving Promise.
