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!
