As the founder and CEO of Model View Culture, techie, author and entrepreneur Shanley Kane is one of the most outspoken advocates on the need for diversity in the field of technology. Model View Culture publishes the work of a myriad of activists and authors who provide commentary on the pressing social issues that permeate the tech community, ranging from women’s rights, race, LGBTQ, and many other important topics.

Since its creation, Model View Culture has made a lasting impression in the tech community by giving voice to members of the tech community who might otherwise be ignored. I had the honor of talking to Shanley about Model View Culture and its impact in the world of technology.
