“Progress is far more important than perfection”
In this episode, I chat with Tiana Davis Kara about her transition from marketing into tech. We discuss how to find your passion in tech, being a woman of color in tech, code-switching vs bringing your authentic self to work, what Gen Zs are looking for in a tech company and how to get involved in the amazing work BUILT BY GIRLS is doing to equip the next generation of female and nonbinary tech leaders, builders and creators.
