Why Maydm

As a Black woman with an IT background in corporate and higher education, I am well aware of the challenges and opportunities that exist for women and other underrepresented groups in our industry. I am committed to showing our youth that a future in STEM is possible for them and provide them with the STEM knowledge, training, and opportunities with local employers to be successful.
