As we all know, February is Black History Month. It’s a month where we honor those who have made an impact on American culture for equal rights, those who have invented, those who have a helped others and those who have inspired everyone to be the best they can be, not only as a person of color but as a human.
As someone in the technology/web/social space, I often travel and attend various events in the industry and notice a huge lack of diversity, and when it comes to getting attention from mainstream media/tech blogs it’s almost impossible. That’s why I’m starting 28 Days of Diversity on SocialWayne.com. The goal of 28 Days of Diversity is to feature someone new everyday for the month of February for just being awesome in their own right. The list will include some of leaders in the social web space, startups, bloggers, conference organizers, IT professionals and friends not ranked in any particular order. Each post will include a picture, bio, two links from the selected person and this paragraph. So for the next 28 days, come back to visit SocialWayne.com to see who’s on the list. For day 19, I would like to introduce to some and present to others: Corvida Raven
Technology Blogger, Speaker, and Consultant Corvida Raven is looking at a very bright future. She is the voice behind SheGeeks.net, co-founder of EverythingTwitter and The SocialGeeks Podcast, and an Influential Woman in Technology. Corvida’s passion for sharing her technology insights, the best mobile tools, and what’s what in social media makes her blog contagious. Eager and dedicated networking skills make her a powerhouse in person. Her talents have been used by industry leading tech brands such as ReadWriteWeb, Guidewire Group, Mr. Tweet, and FastCompany. A great personality, not to mention gadgets, is putting this young lady in high demand. And there are no signs of Corvida slowing down.
Come back tomorrow to see who’s next on the list.
