Angela Dugan

People Lead

Polaris Solutions

I am a software consultant turned Microsoft evangelist turned software consultant (again) turned agile coach turned Director, turned People Lead. What's a People Lead? I handle all things "people". I focus on fostering an environment where people can truly thrive by attracting, training, and supporting amazing humans here at Polaris Solutions. My goals include contributing to a culture that values diversity, experimentation, community, vulnerability, and safety. I am passionate about building an environment where people are challenged, feel valued, and can do work they truly love and can be proud of. When I am not a #PeopleOps engineer, I love playing board games, pretending to be good at CrossFit and boxing, I am an aspiring crafty diva, and an avid gardener. I feel like my husband and I are constantly working on our 100+ year old house in Oak Park, with the "help" of our two ornery chickens Betsy and Gertrude, and our rambunctious GSP named Sadie. Angela is an avid board gamer, an accidental CrossFit junkie, an aspiring crafty diva, and a Twitter addict. She is constantly working on her 100+ year old house in Oak Park with her husband David, where they raise two ornery chickens Betsy and Gertrude and a rambunctious GSP named Sadie. @OakParkGirl
