That black people are actually in the field of technology? Not so much.
That black people in this field are being acknowledged for their accomplishments?
Yeah that part.
Admittedly, its has been at a crawling speed that African Americans or any black people have entered the field of technology. But now, according to Business Insider, this is changing, and the accomplishments of at least 46 black execs in the field are being recognized.
Here ‘s the top 3, starting with the newest hire of a company valued at $471.5 billion dollars with 10,000 employees.
As the new head of worldwide Human Resources for the gargantuan Apple, its probably fair to say that Denise Young Smith has taken quite a bite out of the competition.
Smith was chosen to lead the company’s worldwide human resources division, a position previously held by Joel Podolny, a white man. Smith’s new responsibilities are quite a step up from her previous role (which was not too shabby either); where she, as head of HR for the company’s retail division, managed 42,800 of the company’s 80,300 workers in the last fiscal year.
