Now is the time to start asking questions about Black tech leaders and technologists — not about whether they exist, but about how they exist. As founder of the digital news platform covering the Black innovation economy, The Plug, Sherrell Dorsey reminds us of the importance of asking questions to elicit different pathways to success for the underrepresented. Through unique resources and partnership opportunities, Black tech entrepreneurs can find ways to close the racial gap in the tech industry and create positive change. Sherrell reveals several industries with open opportunities that Black entrepreneurs can pursue — ones that not only can make a huge impact on our country’s most pressing challenges, but also provide a competitive advantage that can pave the way for gaining access to capital and clients for long-term success. Lastly, Sherrell reminds Black leaders to lean on their community to help encourage them to keep pushing towards the goal, no matter what barriers come their way.
