28 Apr: She’s proud to carry on her family’s trailblazing legacy

If you’ve met Jen Teves, you’ve met her grandmother, Vicenta. The two were so close that Jen can see how her grandmother, who died in 2011, shows up in her day-to-day life.

When Vicenta, a teacher in the Philippines, taught Jen math as a child, she wasn’t allowed to have calculators or count on her fingers. She would put her hands behind her back and work the problems out in her head.

Jen, a research director at Best Buy, still uses these skills and others her grandmother taught her.

15 Jan: Best Buy's 'More of this' campaign aims to drive change

While technology can do a lot for the world, it’s the people who make all the difference. Yet, for too long, some people have been left out of opportunities, jobs, equity and expression simply because of who they are.

At Best Buy, we believe technology can help give more people a voice. It can level the playing field and take creativity to new heights.

That’s the inspiration behind our new “More of this” marketing campaign, which kicks off this month. Focused on supporting inclusion and diversity, the mantra refers to giving more access, representation and recognition to more people.
