Black Tech CLT: Sherrell Dorsey is making waves with her tech-focused events

Sherrell joins Queen V and Light Skin Joe of the Phone Wallet Keys Podcast to talk about blacks in technology.

March is Women’s History Month, and do you know who’s making waves in Charlotte with her tech-focused events?

Sherrell Dorsey launched the “Black Tech CLT” series, an interactive event designed to immerse black tech entrepreneurs, professionals, venture capitalists, and enthusiasts in the Queen City’s local startup ecosystem. She’s also the founder of The Plug – a daily newsletter focusing on black people and technology.

Why does this matter? As the job market focuses on technology, we need to focus on creating more opportunities for Blacks technologists and tech entrepreneurs. “Blacks in tech” is an important conversation that needs to be had – and often.

Cues – The Phone Wallet Keys Podcast

Selected for the inaugural class of Hygge Coworking’s Podcast Residency, the podcast focuses on topics that will inspire and encourage ambitious millennials. Co-hosts Davida Jackson (aka “Queen V”) and Joseph Smith (aka “Light Skin Joe”) talked to Dorsey about Charlotte’s tech scene and Thursday’s upcoming event, #BLACKTECHCLT. They are joined by Kendrick Carrol, creator of the MRA2 mobile app – developed in response to police brutality cases — which can potentially save lives.

Listen up.
