General manager, healthcare, Amazon Web Services
In her leadership role at Amazon Web Services, Yang has supported healthcare organizations like MedStar Health and Houston Methodist in tackling COVID-19. She previously served as chief strategy officer for population health at Ascension, co-head of Ascension Holdings International, and vice president of digital media and strategy at AOL Time Warner and Discovery. She has served on White House task forces on health IT and broadband and on the boards of CommonSpirit Health and Providence-St. Joseph Health.
Yang speaks: “What defines your core—your very essence—is both formed and revealed in those unseen moments, when no one else is looking, when you are faced with a choice: a choice to do what is good over what is easy. My experience has been that what you choose in each of those unseen moments collectively forms the person you are, and when you choose what is good over what is easy, people will notice, but, more importantly, you will notice and you will have greater confidence in who you are and the value you bring to what you do.”
