Writer Statement

Based on "GAME-Faint Signals", diversity novel (ISBN 978-3-942358-08-8). Although the fictional story incorporates a woman’s real-life experiences in the tech industry, I believe it serves as a more general study of what successful people from underrepresented groups may face in a team where they are the only one of their kind. Over the past decade, progress to increase DEI at top management levels has been marginal. For those hitting the glass ceiling hard, speaking out about their experiences is not an option. It would harm their reputation and career opportunities. However, seeing a role model in familiar situations on screen could empower a large audience (currently in hiding) worldwide to break their silence and drive real change.
