As an engineering manager at Abstract, Dee Tuck juggles a lot. But whether it’s overseeing teams or recruiting and retaining talent, Dee makes sure that diversity and inclusion are a crucial element of her work from day to day. That’s where we began our conversation, but wait…there’s more!

Dee talked about her time attending the illustrious Tuskegee University, gave insight on where her strong sense of ambition stems from, and talked about the importance of bringing your whole self to work. According to Dee, the journey isn’t always easy, but the payoff is definitely worth it!

paul-edoho-eket-300

I first met Paul Edoho-Eket earlier this year at HOW Design Live here in Atlanta. Paul is a design educator that’s currently pulling double duty in Nashville, TN at Nossi College of Art and Fisk University. Talk about dedication!

Since our interview was an extra from HBCU Month, we did spend a good bit of time comparing and contrasting his teaching experiences at Nossi and Fisk. Paul is a Fisk alumnus, and he talked about his time at Fisk, as well as what drives him to give back through education. Paul had a lot to say and the conversation definitely went pretty deep in a few places, so make sure you listen through it all. Thank you Paul for sharing your story!

“If there’s one thing I want people to know, it’s that computer science is accessible by everyone.” When Dr. James H. Hill told me that, I had a feeling this was going to be a pretty interesting interview. Dr. Hill is currently an associate professor of computer science at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses and serves as co-director of their Software Engineering and Distributed Systems research group.

We started off with Dr. Hill’s backstory and how he got into computer science, and from there he walks us through his work at IUPUI and some of the current projects he’s overseeing and researching. Dr. Hill and I also spoke about the current government administration’s focus on computer science curriculum and what that means for educators and students. It’s a great interview, and I’m always glad to get the chance to talk with a fellow Morehouse alum. Enjoy!
