I recently had the opportunity to talk with La’Shon Anthony about her role in the tech industry.
La’Shon Anthony is the owner of visuals4u, a consulting practice for small business owners & nonprofits. She is also the Community Leader of ABI.Chicago, the local chapter of the Anita Borg Institute, and a founding member of the 2020 Women on Boards Chicago Campaign.
In addition to networking and panel discussion events, ABI.Chicago’s signature program, the Learn A Language Series, teaches Intro & Intermediate programming in multiple languages to adults. And because it’s their 30th anniversary, they are especially excited about the Grace Hopper Celebration in Orlando in October. Plus, many of the chapters including Chicago will have Viewing Parties. So take a look at the website and the upcoming events. Membership is free. There are currently 20 global chapters so one of them is probably close to you!
