The Truth About Mentoring Minorities

by byronw

Published November 18, 2016 in Technology

In the tech industry, we currently lack the ability to produce mentors who are able to effectively teach and connect with their minority protégés. In this talk, we discuss what changes we can make in the way we mentor to give our minority protégés the best chance to succeed. We will take a look at some of the struggles that I faced throughout my software developer apprenticeship, and pinpoint the sources of my success. In conjunction, we will also look at various case studies of other minority professionals who were both successful and unsuccessful in their attempts to climb the corporate ladder.
