Alicia attended the Anita Borg institute Grace Hopper Christmas party and decided to ask the women there about 2017. The two questions were. What was your thoughts about what happen to women and what women did this year? Also as women what was accomplishments or what was this year like for you personally? Alicia had plenty of diverse views as well as very personal stories.
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.
