6 engineers, 3 product managers, 2 designers, 1 marketer all leveled up in title too. Now they're in a position to prep and hire folks that look like them. They can change this toxic tech culture from the inside.

Another one of my colleagues got hired from a personal referral. That's 14 black folks(8 women, 6 men)who have doubled or tripled their compensation for a total of $3.85 million. Don't believe these companies when they say hiring diverse candidates is hard

The fact that Tesla's stock can decline because Elon Musk smoked weed on camera is hilarious, especially when a good chunk of Silicon Valley CEOs were at Burning Man. We're also not counting the known snowbird CEOs and those who microdose stimulants. Y'all need to smoke and chill

What's wild is that the programs black folks design/run are more effective than companies with huge budgets. One year I placed more black engineers at companies by myself than FB and Google combined.

Dear France, Congratulations on winning the . 80% of your team is African, cut out the racism and xenophobia. 50% of your team are Muslims, cut out the Islamophobia. Africans and Muslims delivered you a second World Cup, now deliver them justice.

Meanwhile dropped one of the hardest projects of 2018. Not to mention one of the best album covers I've seen in a long time.
