Atefeh Riazi, NYCHA's CIO, was the topic of my presentation. I chose Atefeh Riazi because she is a legend among CIOs and she has an excellent career path which includes implementing the MetroCard, taking part in CIO's Without Borders, and working in NYCHA's affordable housing developments to help people who need it.
