Sponsoring underrepresented people in tech

November 2, 2017. 89 words and a 1 min read.

Inspired by @aphyr’s tweet on sponsoring people who are underrepresented in tech, I’ve decided to also jump in. Time to put my money where my mouth has only previously been.

As such, I’ve also joined (read: stolen) Aphyr’s idea and created a similar page of my own. So please reach out.

This is hopefully just the first step for me. I want to try and take this idea further, beyond the idea of helping people attend tech conferences.

Do you have any ideas for how I could do that?
