Repeat with me “You got this”, “You can do whatever you put your mind to”, “You are good enough.” Constant affirmations that I have been reminding myself of lately. So I’m reminding all of you, you are enough and you got this 💕💻
@focalpointsolutions - It’s no surprise that America’s tech world seriously lacks diversity. According to Tech Crunch, only 3% of Silicon Valley’s workforce is black and “only 0.0006% of venture capital funding goes to black female founders.” Although black people are 13% of the nation’s population, they only hold 3% of the nation’s wealth.
For the past few years, tech companies have struggled with bringing more diversity to their workforces. In fact, venture capitalist Kobie Fuller, who is a black professional himself, has tried to find a solution to the problem since he experienced the loneliness that can sometimes come with being the only black person in the room.
Fuller also became the go-to person for many startup companies looking to hire candidates of color.
As Fuller says, “people would come to me and say ‘I want to hire more black talent’ and I just didn’t have that magical database in my head. But I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if I did have that magic database of talent.”
That’s how Valence came to be. Valence launched on Nov. 5 and is a social network open to any black professional looking to get connected with other black professionals. According to Tech Crunch, “initial candidates are vetted by members of the community, which can vouch for new applicants.” Via - www.blackenterprise.com

Are aware of Stalkerware?
Cybersecurity companies are partnering with domestic violence prevention organizations to take on stalkerware -- tools widely used by abusive partners to track victims without their knowledge. In October, the Federal Trade Commission settled its first case against a stalkerware company, but this new coalition is looking to do more.
On Tuesday, ten groups announced they were creating the Coalition Against Stalkerware, which aims to help affected victims and spread awareness about the stalking tool. The groups include cybersecurity companies like Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, NortonLifeLock, along with organizations like the National Network to End Domestic Violence and Operation Safe Escape.
Stalkerware is frequently used by stalkers and abusers who quietly download the tracking apps onto victims' phones. The apps send constant updates like a person's location data, phone calls, text messages, photos and microphone feeds. These apps are often disguised as "family tracking apps," and can slip by antivirus programs and app stores.
Eva Galperin, who heads cybersecurity for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, called for antivirus companies to start flagging stalkerware in April. The coalition announced Tuesday is a collaborative effort toward that end. "Stalkerware, used for spying on phones and computers in domestic abuse or harassment situations, is a very serious problem, and it often goes hand in hand with other forms of abuse, up to and including physical violence," Galperin said in a statement. "The ubiquity of stalkerware is a complex problem and we need stakeholders from all parts of society in order to fight it effectively." Companies like Malwarebytes and Symantec, which owns Norton, said they have been acting against stalkerware for years. Kaspersky first announced that it would start taking action against stalkerware in April.
