Bio:

Hi, I’m Abby. I’ve been a Software Engineer for about 5 years, in the e-Commerce, Banking and Education sectors.

Having organised events like Afrotech Fest, ClojureBridge and local programming meetups, I love promoting STEM (functional programming in particular) and bringing together those of us who are underrepresented in the technology industry.

What I offer as a mentor:

I can offer 1:1 mentoring from the perspective of a Black woman in tech. In particular:

Getting started in Tech/as a Software Engineer
Self- and professional development
Working for yourself, becoming a contractor
Networking, promoting yourself
Salary negotiation
Navigating white male spaces as a Black woman
Running events, building communities
Other things, get in touch!
