Growing diversity and inspiring developers is high on our passion list. We believe in the power of diversity to ignite change in the world. Our speaking engagements range in topics such as the “State of the Technology Industry,” and “Hiring for Diversity and Inclusion.”
Elaine Marino brings a very unique perspective to her presentations. She left the Fortune 500 advertising industry to become a Ruby on Rails developer. It was then when she experienced first-hand the tremendous gap in diversity within software development and saw clearly how change could be made, for the better. During her presentations, Elaine shares her journey into the world of coding and tech startups with an upbeat, engaging, and at times, humorous manner. Her talks are packed with “aha” moments and gut wrenching realizations of the lack of diversity in the tech space.
Elaine’s presentations spark conversations, ideas, and most importantly: action. Elaine has a way of connecting people to drive the change she hopes to see in the technology industry.
