As the Director of Social Impact, Kerry Steib builds empathy and equity through culture. She develops programs with creative changemakers, awesome nonprofits, and the power of Spotify’s platform.
At Spotify, she’s developed Black History is Happening Now and the Sound Up Bootcamp to amplify and support creators of color, I’m With the Banned (Emmy nominee, Cannes Lions Silver, ONE Show Golden Pencil), to support the free exchange of ideas and shift perception of immigrants and refugees through artist stories, Clarify (Emmy nominee) to encourage Spotify’s audience to vote, Here to Stay (Halo Award), where donated materials from Spotify’s SXSW experience were used to build a recording studio for Kealing Middle School and First Song (Webby Award) featuring Spotify’s partnership with the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Kerry’s previous experience spans product marketing, sales development, and business marketing at Spotify, AOL and Google. She believes the best solutions are ones created together and that there’s no such thing as music that’s a guilty pleasure. She was named to Refinery29’s “Rising Female Tech Stars” and was a MAKER@Spotify awardee.
