Who Are The Rest of Us in Tech?
It’s the people that are there, but you don’t always hear them. They’re the people drowned out in the meetings. The people mistaken for admins. The people with great ideas, but never get credit for them. While many conferences, events, parties, and more are aimed at technical people, there’s The Rest of Us in Tech who are often ignored.
The “rest of us” includes different people in tech including women, people of color, LGBTQ people, disabled, and more. For this, “in tech” can mean developers, designers, managers, artists, writers, or anyone who feels they exist in a technology space.
About the Podcast
This podcast is to give those people voices. It’s to show off what they’re doing at work, at school, at home, and in their cities. It’s to show the great things you may or may not have heard of, but there’s someone great behind the scenes making it happen.
This podcast will aim to hear from underrepresented people from many areas of tech, and have some fun chatting with them in the process.
