200 Women of Color On Twitter To Follow.

First, I want to give credit to this idea to Jeneba who produced Yes We Tech: 161 Black Women in Tech to Follow on Twitter and 185 Women of Color in Tech to Follow on Twitter. My list is not as organized or detailed but has a different circle of users with a little overlap with these previous lists. I hope you can use all three lists to share this empowering narrative of the existence of women of color!

Don’t be fooled by your environment, the movies you watch or the news stories you read, great leadership by women of color exists right now. Below is a list that contains some of these women! While success rates are slow to rise in many industries including medicine, research, and startups, there are visible Women of Color out there that you can follow and learn from. Learn how these women are leading diversity efforts and how much they have already accomplished so far in their respective industries. You can follow all the women I list today and more by subscribing to my live Twitter list which is always being added too.

What is the point of this list? Women of color often report discrimination and conflict both because of their skin color and their gender. The intersection of gender and race is often a point of invisibility, and that has to change. Please help your neighbors, your friends, and your family members to recognize women of color do exist in leadership roles, programming roles, student roles, investor roles, executive roles and founder roles. We can only turn the tide if these women receive credit for the work they do every day and the support to be recognized in a world not made to benefit them. I hope that people who want a change surround themselves with people who are challenging the status quo.

There are a lot more pioneering women of color than the ones I entered on this list. Continue to share the names of the women you think deserve some Twitter love by tweeting their profiles at me to add to my Twitter list.
