Tech can be an isolating industry. Our communities inspire us, support us, bring us together, and help us build better products. It is also our communities that hold us accountable.

In this talk, Posey draws on her non-traditional journey into tech to illustrate how honest investments can build a sustainable community that is integral to the advancement of its members.
