I’m also the advisor for several diversity and inclusion impact organizations such as Women Who Code, Engine.is, ODALC,Qeyno, and STEMBoard.

As the co-organizer of the Tech Inclusion Conference we’re exploring innovative solutions to tech diversity and inclusion.

I’m looking forward to connecting with world leaders who are passionate about about all people of all races and genders who understand it’s our human right to live and live in a fair and just world.

Never conform to what others think of you. Know your value, trust your gut and focus on your goals and impact. Believe in yourself at all times and find trusted champions to help you accomplish your life purpose. 

Sometimes it’s luck, sometimes it’s marketing, sometimes its partners, sometimes its mentors, sometimes its all over the above.

#WomenInTech @JotakaEaddy (@PayNearMe) and +Jewel Burks (@PartPic& Google) joined +BUILDUP to discuss the journey of breaking into #tech as #underrepresented company executives. Both women analyzed the variety of challenges they've faced in their individual quests and the changes they hope we can all make immediately: 

Jotaka often finds herself at tech summits, where she looks ""around [a] room... of about 500 people... [and can count] on one hand the number of black women [she sees]."" She wonders ""How [it is] that we are in [a tech world] where there [are such few] black women... [when there is a] major conversation about technology.

Yesterday I met a founder at the F8 Facebook diversity event. He said he watched a recent interview I did with Rev. Jesse Jackson. He was inspired and then built an iOS keyboard app, got a lot of downloads. Then he received a grant & support from Facebook's FB start program and now is attending F8.

He said before watching the video he was hesitant to build a product. We meet for the first time yesterday.

That's just one of the reason, we must tell stories, build and #keepmovingforward.
