Where Are All The Women of Color in Tech?

I’ve been in the tech space straight out of college and my biggest complaint is the lack of shine on women, especially of color, and especially us women who aren’t coders or designers. Us girls who like to write, call the shots, and do all your grunt work behind the scenes exist. Our independent spirit, desire to break out of the norm, and carve our own paths has always been here. But no one has given us the mic just yet in this industry. We are still an underrated minority, constantly planning our next strategic move to the top. Can someone give US a billion dollar funding already?
