AEA Director, Executive Committee
Michael Kureth is an award winning technology and entertainment industry professional with decades of experience in software engineering, film production, and executive management. He was a co-lead and founding member of The Walt Disney Company’s Diversity and Inclusion Los Angeles chapter for the company’s Disabilities and Accessibilities initiative. He also created and hosted a tech series, Whiteboard Challenge®, to advocate for diversity in tech and illustrate ways for hiring to be more inclusive for race, age, gender, and hidden disability (e.g., ADHD, PTSD, Autism, etc).
In the creation of the series and through personal experience, Mike observed how employment discrimination on the basis of age and disability were a common and preventable cause to the homelessness crisis. This inspired him to become involved with Age Equity Alliance to take action in educating and protecting the rights of citizens. By joining the Board, he hopes to work closely with others who can help in the advocacy of workplace age equity.
