Starting from July 27th, 2018

Testimonial – December 13th, 2018

While being very busy with software engineering work and other tech advocacy activities, Frances took the time to thoroughly answer my questions regarding finding my dream job in tech. Instead of generic answers, she provided her opinion as well as other alternatives. She inspires me to be a female leader of color in tech. I hope to work with Frances more in the future.
