POCIT: 7 Black Engineers You Need To Know
There’s a misconception in Silicon Valley that there aren’t enough talented black and Latino people to hire. My intention with this weekly series, People of Color in Tech (POCIT), to highlight the up-and-coming people of color in tech, as well as the people of color who are already making waves in the industry.
Don’t hesitate, and please feel encouraged to send me your nominations. Holler at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line, “POCIT.” Also, a serious hat tip to Ruth Mesfun over at PeopleOfColorInTech.com. Keep fighting the good fight, Ruth!
