Candidate statement on how they would contribute to the board’s diversity?
“I’m a woman in technology, which is still unusual, unfortunately. I live in the Northwest part of the city. As a leader in a predominantly black institution, I have a demonstrated ability to respect and communicate with a diverse community. In my role at CCP, I appreciate the critical role that PEG channels play in providing a platform for different – and sometimes unpopular- points of view. I am also sensitive to the needs of differently abled people, and how technology can be both a powerful tool and a source of frustration at the same time.”
