Tonya M. Evans

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I chat with tech executive, diversity and inclusion activist, speaker and author Bari A. Williams about the business case for D&I in tech, COVID-19 devastating impact on progress in hiring for tech jobs, the role of entrepreneurship in bridging the divide and Bari’s recent Fast Company article, Why Diversity Efforts Might Be the Next COVID-19 Casualty. So get ready for a great episode that offers lots of facts and words of wisdom as we find our way past surviving to thriving in this new-not-so-normal.

There’s a more cost effective and time-efficient way to reach your leading-edge learning and earning goals, to put you ahead of the stiff competition to create opportunity and generational wealth in this fast-paced, tech-driven economy. You need skills. Credentials. An advantage. And I can help! I empower underestimated life-long learners traditionally locked out of tech and finance to take control of their financial futures and participate in the new digital cash economy safely, legally and confidently in a welcoming space so they can stay ahead of the curve and create autonomy, opportunity and generational wealth in the fast-paced, tech-driven world.
