Hoboken, NJ (February 25, 2020) – For too long, young women of color have been underrepresented in tech and many have not had the access to strong support networks or resources to build successful careers in the tech industry. With several years in the technology industry, author and technical specialist Susanne Tedrick understands the many challenges that young women of color face and has written Women of Color in Tech in hopes of inspiring the next generation of women to explore careers in tech and provides a road-map to navigating the industry and building a rewarding future.
Tedrick says, “I wrote this book for women of color who may have the spark and curiosity in pursuing a path in tech, but perhaps, may need some guidance and clarity on what a tech career could look like beyond the ones we traditionally associate with the industry. I also wanted to provide actionable and practical steps that they can take now to build their careers, even if that path changes in the future. Finally, I wanted to talk openly on specific issues that may be a challenge for them – bias, imposter syndrome, mental health and lack of strong support systems among a few – and strategies to help navigate them through.”
Through her own experience of transitioning into the tech industry, Tedrick shares inspiring stories and practical, real-world advice to arm young women with the tools and knowledge they need to develop their skills, follow industry trends, find mentors and a support network, and cultivate strong relationships to build a successful career.
Tedrick aims to dispute many of the misconceptions about technical careers – (it’s not all about coding!) – and shares her experience of an industry that can be diverse, fun and incredibly dynamic. She invites young women to explore a future in tech and cultivate a vision for their futures by developing the right tools and the right mindset to be successful in the world of tech.
