Black excellence in tech: Panelist Spotlight – Stephanie Jones
Codeup is hosting our second Black Excellence in Tech Panel in honor of Black History Month on February 22, 2023! To further celebrate, we’d like to spotlight each of our panelists leading up to the discussion to learn a bit about their respective experiences as black leaders in the tech industry!
Stephanie Jones is an Alumna of Codeup’s Data Science Program (March 2022) and currently works as a Business Intelligence Developer for Victory Capital, a global investment management firm based in San Antonio, TX.
Stephanie is passionate about visual storytelling and, as a late “tech bloomer,” is also an advocate for equitable access and educational opportunities in technology for underserved communities.
We asked Stephanie to share more about her experience at Codeup. She shares, “I have always been a creative and Codeup opened up a world of possibilities by exposing me to advanced technical concepts and career opportunities.” Stephanie also speaks to the community of support in the program and beyond. “The network and support from instructors, mentors, and peers began during the application phase (which was intense), before the program even started, and has carried over even after completing the program and entering into the workforce.”
We hope you can join us on February 22nd to sit in on an insightful conversation with Stephanie and all of our panelists!
