Korene Stuart has over 6 years in the tech space, beginning as a programmer to digital project management. She ventured into tech after many years of encouraging her children to do the same. The journey wasn’t easy but certainly worth it. As she began immersing herself into the tech community she observed the need for diversity, equity and inclusion. She started serving as a tech volunteer for Black Girls Code Miami then ultimately became their Tech Lead, hoping to help increase the number of minority women enter into tech careers. She has facilitated career and scholarship workshops for adolescents and young adults and serves as a mentor for Girl Develop It and Director of Programming for Girl Develop It.
