Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, Zebra Technologies
Cristen Kogl joined Zebra Technologies in 2015 and became General Counsel in 2018. She previously served as General Counsel of National Express LLC and Vice President and Corporate Secretary of Grainger, and took her first general counsel role at age 32.
"I know that, someday, modifiers like 'one,' 'first' and 'only' will be irrelevant when talking about female lawyers in many capacities," Cristen said in a recent interview. "My hope is for that day to come sooner than later, so that the current generation of lawyers and those who come behind us can focus on advocating for their clients or customers versus having to advocate for themselves."
As part of LCLD's Leaders at the Front initiative, Cristen created a Leader's Pledge detailing her personal and organizational commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Read Cristen's pledge here.
Diversity initiatives at Zebra include an Inclusive Leadership Course for managers, allyship training for male employees, and an annual diversity week.
