Our guest, Darrell Booker, Program Manager for the Nonprofit Tech Acceleration for Black and African-American Communities (NTA) at Microsoft Philanthropies, joins us for a discussion with far-reaching consequences. How do technology companies provide genuine support for racial equity and justice causes? What are the challenges we face as an industry — and country– related to these endeavors? This Why IT Matters is part visionary, part personal, part reality check, and all heart. Darrell walks us through his experience in technology leadership and the formation of the NTA in mid-2020 responding to the national George Floyd protests and call for equity in America. A challenge to technology companies and corporate leadership is where we wrap up.
