Veni Kunche knows tech. A software engineer for over 10 years, she has been named a “Powerful Woman Programmer” by DCFemTech twice. But Kunche’s extensive experience in the tech sector has made deeply aware of the tech world’s tendency towards amplifying voices that are typically white and male.
That’s why Kunche started Code with Veni, an online newsletter dedicated to highlighting the stories of women and underrepresented communities in tech. In addition to inspirational stories, the newsletter includes pieces of advice from other women in tech and features a “toolbox” of resources teaching basic coding skills, career advice, and recent job postings.
Kunche also founded DiversifyTech, an organization that connects underrepresented coders with jobs and potential employers.
