200 Black Women in Tech to Follow on Twitter

The 2017 List

To learn the story behind how this list started read “Yes We Tech (2016)” and for any additional information, visit our brand new site dedicated honoring and recognizing brilliant black women in tech, BlackWomenTech.com.

In sum, the 200 Black women In Tech to Follow on Twitter list was initially created to combat the virtual absence of the acknowledgment of the fact that there is ample Black Women working in tech. Like other social demographics in the tech space who are regularly celebrated and recognized, Black Women too are doing amazing and phenomenal things.

More so, they are also helping the ecosystem become more nurturing, inclusive and supporting of underrepresented groups and communities, by being ambassadors in the space and helping others come into it fully.

The purpose of the list is to combat the common response we hear given for the dearth of Black Women on those “Notable people in tech” lists, on tech and digital industries conference panels, on hiring staffs of tech companies and among the portfolio of Venture Capital firms: “We didn’t know where to find them” or “We didn’t know they exist.”

The 200 women on this list frequently update their Twitter accounts with insights, information, events, commentary about tech inclusion and about their own personal ventures and travels in and around the Tech Space.

Unlike last year, the 200 Black Women to Follow On Twitter list is not separated by industries. We realized that too many of the women are multi-functional and multi-disciplinarians, having numerous roles, so it is difficult to peg them into only one square hole or another.

Nonetheless, you will find it includes:

Software Engineers, Web Developers, Coders, Hackathon Founders, Incubator and Accelerator Operators, Angel Funders, IT Consultants, Tech Evangelists, Engineers, Investors, Appreneurs, Founders, Gamers, Software Architects Social Media and Digital Strategist, FinTech, EdTech and Health Tech Evangelists, Tech Inclusion advocates, Tech Policy Advocates, Tech Instructors/Professors, Tech Journalists and Bloggers, Tech Employment Recruiters and Tech PR agents, and more.

You can follow the complete LIST on Twitter by subscribing to it HERE!

My co-curators and I created a website to house the acknowledgment titled BlackWomenTech.com where you can nominate someone to be on the next list and sign up for updates on the women on this year’s list.
