Hi! I'm Brēyana
I'm an inclusive tech culture building advocate.
As the Director of the Rural Innovation Network at the Center on Rural Innovation (CORI), I work with our Rural Innovation Network communities to develop and implement strategies that increase interest and participation in entrepreneurship, digital skilling, and tech career development programs, with a particular focus on engaging program participants that represent the full diversity of their communities.
As a recipient of the Future Good-Field Trips to the Future grant, I've spent the last six months connecting women of color from across the country who are living in rural America and working in tech.
The Rural Slice is an effort to amplify the voices and lived experiences of people in tech we don’t typically hear from.
I hope by sharing these stories, we can bring awareness to the diverse journeys and experiences of these incredible women and in turn, shift our thinking of who can be be successful in tech.
