The Changists' Manifesto

As Changists, we aim to disrupt an industry that’s resistant to disruption while changing the lives of others by raising awareness of mental health. We donate a percentage of our profits to mental health causes.

Meet The Changists' Leadership Team

Stacey Stevenson

Founder

Stacey considers herself an unorthodox student of technology. She selected tech as a means of survival when she moved to Dallas from her small town (about 400 miles away at the southern tip of Texas) at the age of 21.

Having no formal background and only a GED education, Stacey read a Windows 95 manual overnight and landed the job. From there, she grew to love all aspects of technology and leadership and that passion has sustained for over twenty years. Since then she has earned multiple technology and leadership certifications and holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Management.

Besides being a Senior Managing Director at Charles Schwab & Co., modernizing Contact Center Technology, she is also their incumbent National PRIDE ERG Co-Chair, effectively creating a safe and inclusive space for all in the workplace.

Her sincere dedication to amplifying the voices of women made her a co-founder of Lez Talk: A Women’s Empowerment Conference, which celebrates the lives and love of LGBTQ+ women. Being an acclaimed speaker, she has also emceed for the Conference as well as for the Lesbians Who Tech Summit, which celebrates LGBTQ+ women in and around tech and pushes for systemic change for intersectional gender and racial equality in the tech industry, our society, and beyond.
