Raised in a violent Bronx neighborhood, Nicole resolved at an early age to create opportunities for under-privileged young people. In short order, she earned degrees from Brown and Penn, served as floor counsel in the Senate, and became a legislative aide to Vice President Biden. She also founded Code the Streets, the first social accelerator to provide startups with cash, resources and mentors to tackle inner city problems. Today she is Head of U.S. Public Policy for LinkedIn and leads partnerships for LinkedIn’s Economic Graph – an ambitious project to digitally represent every economic opportunity in the world and every skill needed to obtain them.
