Making Women’s History — Every Day
“Since I’ve become an instructor, I have surprised many of our trainees when they start the class. I don’t think they’re expecting me, so it makes me happy that they seem open to being taught by a woman of color who didn’t have a tech background. Many of our female trainees relate to me as they realize that I was once in that same position and look at where I am now.”
Connecting and Conversing with Courtney Walker, Technical Instructor
Student Turned Instructor
In celebration of Women’s History Month, we had the chance to sit down with Courtney for an in-depth conversation on her journey as a woman of color in tech starting as an NPower trainee and now paying it forward and encouraging the youth of St. Louis that what they have to offer is desperately needed in the tech industry.
She shares where she draws inspiration from, the importance of representation in tech, her new hobby she’s tapping into during the pandemic, and much more!
