Diversity + Inclusion in Tech
I've worked with a number of companies and organizations promoting diversity in tech. I believe representation--as a woman and as a person of color, matters. This is especially true in tech. Tech touches every aspect of our lives, yet currently the vast majority of decisions in this space are made by one demographic. There are stories to be told, problems to be solved and lives to be changed through tech and they need the variation of perspectives multicultural and gender inclusion can add.
