Have I mentioned lately that I love our Slack community? There are so many talented and amazing people there, including this week’s guest — Lyn Muldrow! Lyn is a front-end developer, as well as the technical manager for Oakland-based nonprofit organization Hack the Hood.
We talked about how she got interested in technology at an early age, her experiences in Silicon Valley (and how that led her to where she is now), and we touch on the double consciousness around “being yourself” in an industry that expects you to conform to culture fit. Lyn also recently attended the White House for their LGBTQ Tech and Innovation Summit, so keep an eye out for her — she’s on the rise!
Revision Path is sponsored by Facebook Design. No one designs at scale quite like Facebook does, and that scale is only matched by their commitment to giving back to the design community. Revision Path is brought to you by MailChimp. Huge thanks to them for their support of the show! Visit them today and say thanks!
Erica Joy is a build and release engineer for Slack. When she’s not busy working on the latest features for the popular team collaboration tool, she’s speaking out on the problems in the tech community and how they can be solved.
We spoke about a typical day at Slack, talked about her popular piece on Medium titled “The Other Side of Diversity”, touched on the topic of diversity advocacy, and even talked about genealogy. (Talk about a range of topics!) Erica’s voice is so needed in this current state of the industry, and I’m really glad for the opportunity to share her story!

For the month of January, we have a 3-part “Design Journeys” series — podcast interviews with designers that have been featured on AIGA.org.
Rounding out our series here on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is an interview with Emory Douglas, the former Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party from 1960-1981. I think you’ll really enjoy this talk with an American design legend.
