Christine Johnson

A native of the Washington Metro area, @Christine Johnson champions ensuring the gamut of diversity in the tech startup and entrepreneurship landscape through her organization IamDTech (formerly DiversiTech). Noted on top 10 lists for women changing the tech scene by various publications, her efforts with I amDTech have been noted in Washington Business Journal, Black Enterprise, Silicon Bayou, Tech Crunch and others nationally. IamDTech ("I am Diversity In Tech") was created in response to an outcry for greater depth of inclusion within the tech entrepreneurship community. The organization accomplishes its mission through a multi-pronged approach that includes amplifying the story of diversity in tech and the efforts of like-missioned organizations, feeding the existing tech entrepreneurship pipeline and growing the diversity in tech community.
