Yes We Can: Overcome Racism in IT

04Feb09

Good day my fellow digerati’s! I know I preach on my site about what we need to do individually and collectively to help increase our chances of moving up in the IT field, despite the odds. In addition to my pie in the sky rhetoric, it would be nice to hear about someone who looks like us who has shattered the glass ceiling we’re on a quest to shatter as well right? Well, look no further than Ms. Waltons, a computer scientist, who is the Manager of the Advanced Engine Test Lab at General Motors. Below is a video of her story and how she overcame the racism of one of her professors at the University of Michigan to excel in Computer Science.
