Trish Millines Dziko on helping students excel in a high-tech world
When Trish Millines Dziko graduated with a computer science degree in 1979, the IT world was predominantly male and white. Her career brought her to Microsoft, and while the high-tech industry exploded, women and people of color remained grossly underrepresented.
In 1996, she left the for-profit world to start the Technology Access Foundation (TAF), a nonprofit whose mission is to equip students of color for success in college and life through science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. Trish talks with Seattle Voices host Eric Liu about her path to TAF.
Premieres tonight, Tuesday, Aug. 7, 7 p.m., on Seattle Channel cable 21.
