"The hardest thing to be, especially as an African American person, is 100 percent authentic. Especially as it relates to corporate America and career building. We tend to have to put on a mask here or there. However, it takes a lot of boldness to be able to be fully authentic.” — Omari Edwards, Mouse Board Member sharing what the word ”Bold” means to him.

Listen now to the latest episode of #NoSuchThingPodcast!

In this episode, Marc is joined by Akbar Cooke, the Vice Principal at West Side High School in Newark NJ, Matt Greenfield, EdTech venture capitalist, and Tywan Jones, a senior at West Side.

This is Part 1 of a 2-Part Episode — A lot is covered in these two episodes, but all of the topics revolve around one single truth: that the prospects for how tech innovation in the US illuminates a path to meaning, and success and wealth is not the same for everyone.

We're thrilled to partner with Hired for this year's #DiversityInTech awards with Code/Interactive! 🎉⚙️

Today, Hired launched their 3rd annual Wage Inequality report, “The State of Wage Inequality in the Workplace.” It analyzes real job offers to reveal wage gaps across race, age, industry, LGBTQ+ status and much more. We hope this report will fuel the conversation about pay equality and empower candidates to ask for what they’re worth.💪💰
