If you could go back in time to the beginning of your career in tech and give yourself a piece of advice, what would you say?

What’s one piece of advice you would give to black women entering the tech industry?

You belong here. Own it.
Need I say more?

If you could change one thing about your current work place to make it a better experience for black women, what would it be?

Yell it for those in the back: Hire 👏🏾 More 👏🏾 Black 👏🏾 Women 👏🏾
Hire us and pay us what we’re worth damnit.

👏One clap, two clap, three clap, thirty?👏
