NCWIT Aspirations Senior Regional Affiliate Manager (RAM)

As a Regional Affiliate Manager for the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing, John supports more than 25 different regions across the nation as they work to increase the meaningful participation of women and girls in computing and technology. This includes building supportive communities for women as they navigate their academic and professional careers, but also working with those communities to change the culture within tech and promote diverse inclusion for all underrepresented people in the industry. By encouraging men to become advocates for the women around them, and engaging a diverse coalition of industry professional, academics, teachers, parents, and tech advocates, John has worked to create systemic change for all people in the computing and technology space.

John has been a fierce advocate for social justice and equality, and has focused his professional career on organizing volunteers to achieve those goals. Prior to joining NCWIT, John worked as a volunteer coordinator for an immigration advocacy group that focused on repealing Arizona’s harsh immigration law and promoting a sensible pathway to citizenship. John also worked as a volunteer coordinator for the Grand Canyon Trust where he recruited, trained, and organized volunteers to advocate for a ban on uranium mining in the Grand Canyon.
