We bring you the voices of today’s renowned societal leaders and average folks talking about what they do, how they got there, and what they're thinking about in the controversial world of diversity, inclusion and race relations. In this episode we talk with Carol Wang who is Using Technology for Social Good.

 

With the advent of technology, it is undeniable that our growth as a society is intricately linked to our technological inventions. However, for a system that serves a diverse populace, the institutions that produce the innovations often lack diversity. For app developer Carol Wang, the only way forward is through more diversity and inclusion. “Live your dream and wear your passion”, is the life mantra of Carol Wang, a young app developer and freshman Computer Science major at UC Berkeley. She shared with DyNAMC that she developed a passion for technology, specifically app development, after “realizing how much you can do with it.”

"I was the female version of Dennis the Menace," Deena shared with DyNAMC. She didn't realize then, that her boldness was indicative of an entrepreneurial spirit which served her well later in life when she launched the most innovative support and training technology program for youth in the country today.

As Maurice Tomlinson puts it, the law is no silver bullet. However, where there is discriminatory legislation, visibility campaigns done by any minority group are at risk. It is not a secret that contact and conversation are the best ways to eradicate xenophobia, but without legislation providing a means of legal recourse, advocates are at risk. DyNAMC speaks with International renowned LGBTI Activist Maurice Tomlinson as to why changed legislation is necessary.
