On this episode, Alicia as a quest speaker at the Dev Fest Summit in Atlanta Georgia takes time to speak to a few women about black women and women of color in tech. Alicia talks to these women about their challenges and experiences with women in tech.
Alicia and I continue with our discuss with how tech companies are failing to recognized the cultural challenges that they need to address in order to have a productive diverse staff. Google started the conversation off from the previous podcast but we speak to the general observation that is not being addressed.
Alicia sits down with her friend and sister from Women who Code Atlanta, Kim Crayton. Kim is a Community Engineer and advocate for diversity, inclusion, and safe spaces in tech.
She has years of experience working with learners of all ages, skill level, and abilities and is now using her knowledge to develop technical people, ideas, organizations, and communities. She is known for her skills as a problem solver and strategy developer. She possesses a unique ability of being able to see the BIG picture while still managing the details.
Whether in the role of Community Engineer, educator, writer, public speaker, mentor, curriculum designer, Kim is always in search of innovative approaches that enable individuals, organizations, and communities to intentionally and skillfully create environments which support the sharing of common attitudes, interests, and goals in order to grow a more diverse and inclusive technology community.
