After the success of volume 1, we will design a new creative book for volume 2. 51 new black women stories are part of the hard copy but we will continuously extend the number of featured stories in the digital version. Each story comes with an interactive section, a journal, and career advice for non-tech and tech roles. ‘The Voices in the Shadow’ volume 2 will again showcase the journeys of 51 Black women in the UK and Ireland who impacted the tech industry.
Words From The Founder of GTA Black Women in Tech :
“I grew up without seeing any aspirational black women despite my mother. Moving to London, I saw more successful black people than I ever saw in Paris. My ambition was elevated. We often only believe in what we see. Without improving representation, the less fortunate are often the ones left with limited aspiration. So, I decided to create this book to revive hope. The Voices In The Shadow illuminates the voices of under-represented talented black women, so we can impact the present and the next generations.”
