Editor's Note: If you like Jaclyn's story, it is included in our new book, Epic Failures in DevSecOps Volume 2. The download is free.
As we were putting the finishing touches to publish the latest version of Epic Failures in DevSecOps, I reread Jaclyn Damiano's chapter and was struck by her unique message. This is a personal story, one that will resonate with many people in the tech industry. It's a story of beginnings, of hardships, of leadership and finally, how all that combines into something much bigger than a technology solution. It's a story that talks about transforming people, not just companies.
What you'll hear in this broadcast is Jaclyn reading her chapter, "Making Everyone Visible in Tech". There's no narrator, no discussion, just Jaclyn in her own words telling the story behind The Athena Project. It's a story of how she and her team took a diverse set of 40 applicants from underserved communities, with no technical background, and created a program to train and place those attendees in the tech industry. It's an inspiring story that needs to be heard.
