IT Visionaries

Feb 25, 2020

From the time she was a little girl competing in science fairs in Chicago, Alexa Dembek has been drawn to the world of science and technology. Today, Alexa is the Chief Technology & Sustainability Officer at DuPont, where she believes she has found the perfect place to use science to make an impact on the world. On this episode of IT Visionaries, Alexa shared with us her role as a champion for growth at the company, and she discussed the way they use failure as a spark for innovation and as a way to propel ideas and people forward. And those ideas are being brought into the world as products designed to create a more sustainable environment for all.   

Key Takeaways:

  • Failure is a great opportunity to learn and advance projects
  • When taking on a project, you need to know what you need to learn, rather than only focusing on what you already know
  • Innovation is to be encouraged if you want to stay ahead of the curve
