Women in Blockchain Panel
I am passionate about spreading diversity within the space and truly feel as a new industry we have the chance to move out of the traditional tech mold and promote hiring qualified individuals of all races and sexes. Furthermore, it’s not about who you are but what you can do as well as all individuals in the space taking the time to help others who want to be in the space. These are a lot of the things I like to touch on these types of panels.
