Digital thinker Tokiwa Smith tweets a day in her life for NPR's 'Tell Me More'

from NOBCChE

On March 28, NOBCChE member Tokiwa Smith will be the featured "tweeter" for National Public Radio's "Tell Me More" show hosted by Michel Martin. Throughout the month of March, "Tell Me More" host Michel Martin will explore why so few women are leaders in the burgeoning technology industries. The latest research suggests that close to 90 percent of tech startups in Silicon Valley are launched by men. She'll host on-air discussions with women who are tech innovators; and on Twitter, Martin and the show's senior producer, Davar Ardalan, will moderate a digital conversation with more game-changing tech leaders around #NPRWIT. Tokiwa Smith, founder and executive director of Science, Engineering and Mathematics, Link Inc. will share her story in 140 characters or less for the entire day. Be sure to follow Tokiwa @tokiwana and @semlink and join the conversation using the hashtag #NPRWIT.

Tokiwa says of the experience, "I am excited to share in real time the essence of what my work as a science educator and social entrepreneur is all about — engaging urban youth in hands on STEM activities which hopefully will inspire them as professionals in fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics." more
