Episode 3: ALICE LI
On Episode three, we're talking with Alice Li, Staff Engineer at Squarespace, builder of the first-ever interactive email, and powerful voice advocating for allyship in the email space. Alice shares her personal history as well as her perspectives on the Bamboo Ceiling, supporting others in the community, and her experiences on the coding side of email strategy.
Alice Li (she/her) is an advocate for inclusive web design and delightful user experiences. After building, leading, and teaching emerging techniques for over a decade in the email industry, she transitioned to the product side at Shutterstock, then went on to bring these disparate experiences together in her current role as Staff Engineer on Squarepace’s email marketing product, Campaigns. Alice is honored to have spoken at Email Evolution Conference, Litmus Live, UNSPAM, MarketingProfs, and MailCon, and to receive the 2018 EEC Stefan Pollard Award for “Email Marketer of the Year” and the 2020 Validity Email Hero Award for “Most Innovative.” Although currently based in New York City, Alice credits her upbringing on the eastside of Detroit, Michigan, for informing her passion for social justice. When she is not working on the STEM part of STEAM, she justifies her occasionally regrettable BFA by painting artwork for galleries, publications, and comic books.
