TROY — When Annmarie Lanesey was looking to hire at her software development company, Greane Tree Technology, a recruiter suggested someone who wasn’t like her typical applicants.

He had never been to college and had been working in a kitchen for the last decade. But he taught himself a coding language that the company uses.  Lanesey brought him on as an intern and soon realized he was a fast learner.

“He was quickly able to work alongside the guy with a four-year degree,” Lanesey said. “I realized that there are people all across the world and there people who have aptitude for this work, and they don’t even know it.”

This is what Lanesey calls her “aha” moment when she realized just because tech jobs are not accessible to a lot of people doesn’t mean it has to be that way. In 2016, she created the …

By day, Laumbach was enrolled in Precision Machining at Canadian Valley Technology Center. She excelled, despite being the only female in the program. She also enrolled in an evening Welding class at the school and served on the SkillsUSA Oklahoma state officer team.

Stories of harassment are, sadly, all too common. However, according to Barlow, the Power List is designed to celebrate and showcase the female rising stars in the UK’s coding community.Women certainly lack visibility in Britain’s tech industry — according to PWC, less than a quarter of A-Level and university …

women and people of color in california are getting laid off. let them back in the door

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

I’ve spent most of my career being the only black woman in the room. Based on my background, statistics would tell you that the odds of finding myself where I am today — a technology expert advising some of America’s most valuable companies — were extremely low. I ran away from home when I was 16 years old, got my GED, and went straight into the workforce. I eventually made the choice to go back to college while working, and kept steadily moving upward. Along the way, I learned that tricks like changing my name on my resume from “Tanishia” to “Toni” was all it took to get a callback. There’s a whole body of research that validates this experience.

By now, so much ink has been spilled over trends that continue to show white and male employees dominating Silicon Valley workforces, especially among the STEM teams building the technologies that are changing our world. A 2016 analysis of the 177 largest San Francisco Bay Area tech firms found that 10 companies didn’t employ a single black woman. Three companies had no black employees at all. Six companies didn’t have any female executives. In the five years since Apple, Facebook, Google, …
