Roxann Stafford's interview on National Public Radio as part of #NPRBlacksinTech #civictech
SAN FRANCISCO – Roxann is a Design Strategist at SecondMuse and has been participating in the twitter event #NPRBlacksinTech. This social media experiment is aimed at raising awareness of the situation of Afro-Americans in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering & math) and increasing participation of Afro-American students in these disciplines.
Because of her very active participation and contributions in this Twitter event, National Public Radio asked to interview her about civic tech, a field in which SecondMuse has engaged with several projects. Civic tech is a movement of active engagement between people, civil society and government who collaborate to solve complex social and environmental problems. As described by Roxann: “New levels of public, private and people partnership that have been accelerated through the ease of connection that new technology is allowing, it is really great to see a redefinition of civic engagement using our talents to improve our communities”.
