Instructure Women Honored

Every year the Women Tech Council holds the Women in Tech Awards - the awards recognize technology-focused women who drive innovation, influence technology companies, and have a passion to better their communities.


This year over 100 talented and forward-thinking women were nominated for their contributions to the tech community. Both Melissa Loble and Gwendolyn Smith from Instructure were nominated, with Gwendolyn Smith taking home an award.



Melissa is currently the VP of Platform & Partnerships for Instructure, which combines her experience in K12, higher education, and corporate learning technology. She has focused the last 20 years on fostering innovation in education, primarily through the use of technology.



Gwendolyn is currently the VP of Customer Success and Services for Instructure, leading customer success, custom development, implementation, and training teams. Gwendolyn has been engaged in the engineering strategy and leadership of hyper-growth software businesses for the past 20 years.


We are proud of both Melissa and Gwendolyn and look forward to the innovations they will continue to provide to the tech community and Instructure customers.
