I’m thrilled and honored to announce that I’ve been recognized as a Technology Rising Star for the Women of Color STEM Conference!
The awards program, hosted by Career Communications Group’s Women of Color magazine, Consumers Energy, and General Motors, annually honors women in STEM professions. This year, their conference will be held in Detroit, MI this October.
The award is given to WoC in technical fields who are excelling in the early stages of their careers are helping to shape technology for the future. I was nominated for the award by my wonderful manager and ally, Kirk Yamatani. I was nominated not only for my commitment to helping both our clients and members of our team succeed but for my steadfast commitment to bring more women and people of color into tech through volunteer work with organizations like P-TECH, Black Girls Code, ChickTech and Systers/AnitaB.org.
Thank you CCG and Kirk for this wonderful recognition and honor!
