Faith advocates for a range of social issues, mainly focusing on gender roles, equal and quality education for all, diversity & inclusion, and its role in alleviating poverty in black communities. In her experience, as a woman in tech, the environment is still hostile towards women, and occupying space in the industry has proven to be difficult. Faith will be covering some of her coping mechanisms and how she maneuvers herself in this male-dominated industry. Do you change the existing culture or do you change yourself to fit in?
