After four years as an in-house leader and diversity, equity and inclusion advocate at Tesla Inc., Valerie Workman will shift into a new role next week as the first-ever chief legal officer for San Francisco-based tech unicorn Handshake. 

Workman, who most recently served as Tesla’s head of human resources, has held important legal, human resources and compliance positions throughout her career. But she’s taking on her first general counsel role at Handshake, a job and internship search platform for college students.
