Stories gather people together for collectively immersive experiences that have the power to inspire and motivate. In this current political moment, it seems the fortifying properties of diversity have been put on mute, or set aside entirely. The question becomes, how can we, as creatives, combat the systemic oppression which fractures our society and pushes out voices who often face a locked door?
Narrative can effectively explain a diverse individual’s struggles and triumphs in what is often an oversaturated and homogenous industry. For people in the audience, this can be impactful, serving as both an example of a hopeful outcome but also a stark reminder of the work ahead. We hope this evening starts productive dialogue and facilitates change.
This event is being host by General Assembly and sponsored by Transamerica.
5:30 Mingle & Mix over food and drinks
Moderated by Chintan Gohel, the following individuals will tell their story in a sequential format.

She began her career in the non-profit world working to empower underrepresented communities, then went on to get an MBA before she decided to teach herself front-end web development and user experience design.

Her natural ability to connect with an audience began in music and performance as a child, and although she went to college to pursue the stage, she received a degree in computer information systems. Kendra landed a 15-year career with IBM and Hewlett Packard but felt she was struggling in a profession that left her unfulfilled.

She is always up for stimulating conversation and is thrilled to connect with interesting people. Feel free to ask her to coffee or kombucha!
