Nominate Someone (including yourself) for CompTIA's Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Executive Council

I have been honored to serve on CompTIA's Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Executive Council for 2020. There are several positions open for 2021.

If you've opted out of competing for the Nobel Peace Prize, you can still jump in contribute something to our community.

As I mentioned back in August, Diversity Isn't Just for the Enterprise! Our entire industry needs to increase diversity and make everyone feel welcome. This CompTIA community is working to make that happen. 

Here's the somewhat official announcement (suitable for sharing on social media):

Change the world. In the tech industry, we often talk about how our technology can change the world. But it's the people in tech that drive the change. Now more than ever, there is an opportunity to drive systemic change across the entire industry, an opportunity to make it more diverse and inclusive. 

CompTIA, the leading technology trade association, is seeking nominations to join the Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Community executive council. Get to know more about our work here:,  learn about the nomination process here:, join us as an ally here:
