200 Black Women In Tech To Follow on Twitter {2020 List}

image
image

In this unprecedented, tumultuous and challenging year, Twitter remained a source for news and information-sharing on all things pandemic related, political and tech!

Even while navigating the stress, anxiety and sometimes heartache and heartbreak that was common this year, the 200 women who made this year's Black Women In Tech to Follow on Twitter list continued to disseminate tips, hacks, insights and knowledge.

They gave of their personal lives working in the tech industry and engaed their followers by providing updates on issues and events related to inclusive tech initiatives around their personal community and the world.

Background

The Black Women In Tech To Follow On Twitter list is back thanks to the generous sponsorship of a Black Woman in Tech Boss, Nicole Commissiong, Vice President, Operations of Maryland-based Dynamic Services Solutions.

The list returns after a brief one-year hiatus because it is and has been a labor of love of mine. Usually, the process of curating it every year is a one to three woman operation. Because it is quite time consuming, it was not financially feasible to pull off in 2019 despite the fact that a lists were released in 2016, 2017 and 2018 previously.

Enter Nicole Commissiong, a government contract powerhouse, who runs one of the few women-lead homeland infrastructure support companies to partner with the United States government and private sector clients for over two decades.

Commissiong's company, Dynamic Services Solutions, an engineering and Project Management and Emergency Management firm was at one time the only black woman-owned Tier-1 Engineering Furnishing and Installation (EFI) vendor for Verizon in the Mid-Atlantic providing telecommunications and power infrastructure.

Even though earlier permutations of the list received support from the tech community and was even retweeted by the Obama Administration's Office on African American affair's Twitter page, it still did not gain much traction outside of Twitter.

But the post-George Flloyd protest movement drew a renewed interest in re-visiting the ways marginalized communities and groups had been ignored, overlooked, underfunded, and not supported.

Black Women continue to represent less than 1% of Venture Capital funding in the tech space and go missing from annual roundups of "Who To Follow Lists" that begin circulating at the end of each year. It was the reason I started this recognition in 2016 in the first place.

"I looked forward to reading about the wonderful, informed, engaging Black women who made the list every year and was disappointed to see it go away," she said. "When asked to help usher in its return, I knew as a Black woman myself who moves and manoeuvrers in a male-dominated field that I had to step in and offer my assistance."

Commissiong currently manages dozens of employees and leads several multi-million dollar high impact infrastructure projects in various technology sectors, and more recently, emergency management, and has a team that is 75% women.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship support of Commissiong, it is an honor to produce and release the latest edition of 200 Black Women in Tech to Follow on Twitter.

Methodology: We selected those who update their accounts regularly, and usually share news, information, images, ideas and tips related to inclusion, the celebration of diversity in tech and the elevation of underrepresented groups. Ideally, the majority of the content shared by these women is not self-promotional but instructive and shared to edify followers while expressing themselves, their passions and their opinions and authentic selves. We could not add accounts that are set to Private.

What's New: This 2020, this year, we tried to go even deeper with pure tech and selected more coders, software engineers, front-end developers and code newbies, including several college students and young professionals, as well as innovators and founders who are under 25.

Also this year, to make room for more individuals, we removed all the organizations that previously occupied space on the list. We celebrate the individuals who are the engines of those groups instead.

We wanted to maintain a robust list of active users of this social media platform’s most informative, influential, and engaging tweeters, so those who have accounts that infrequently tweet were not included this year!

FOLLOW ALL:  If you are on Twitter, you can follow everyone on this list at once by following this Twitter List!

Without much further ado, these were the most active and relevant voices in 2020.

Yours Truly,

Jay Jay Ghatt, Founder and Curator, 200 Black Women to Follow On Twitter
