Code the Dream’s Daisy Magnus-Aryitey discussed her path to a coding career, her new position as Co-Executive Director, and CTD’s recent growth and exciting future in this Q&A with WRAL’s TechWire.
When asked about the importance of diversity in tech, Magnus-Aryitey responded: “We know that if we want to solve complex, real-world problems we need people from diverse backgrounds deeply involved at every step of the way to help build new technology that makes a difference. Innovation requires different points of view and thrives on diverse perspectives. So giving these sharp, driven minds a place to be productive benefits us all. But it’s also the right thing to do — there is no good reason for the tech industry to be excluding so many people, and changing that addresses crucial issues like income inequality and access to health care.”
