Episode 154: Activism in Techpreneurship with Stacy Kirk

Greetings Glocal Citizens!
'Tis the season of gift giving, and have I got a wonderful gift for you in this week's episode. As an entrepreneur, Agile Transformation Coach, and speaker, my guest, Jamaican-American, Stacy Kirk has championed for quality and process innovation in software development for over 20 years. After graduating from Stanford University’s School of Computer Science (Yes, another boss #ChocolateCardinal on the mic!), she gained experience as a developer, tester, and leader in diverse industries, including entertainment, security, finance, and healthcare. In 2010, he founded QualityWorks Consulting Group, an app development firm focused on enabling companies to build higher quality software, creating diverse future-ready teams, and accelerating software delivery. Her company was recognized in 2020 as Inc.’s Best in Business for its social impact driving measurable value to clients such as Comcast, AT&T, Truist, Fandango, Rotten Tomatoes, and Fox. She leads a 50+ and growing team of brilliant technologists located across the US and Jamaica, representing diverse backgrounds, including over 60% women of color. Her team is responsible for creating QualityWatcher, the first AI test case management platform designed to upskill testers while simplifying app quality. In 2020, she launched Posture, a SaaS platform that leverages intelligence and automation to assess and guide small and midsize enterprises to affordably develop a cyber-resilient organization prepared for the competitive advantages of compliance.

I thoroughly enjoyed this insightful conversation with Stacy, from a serious discussion about the business of techpreneurship on a global scale to tips for successful start-up and a lots of laughs long the way,
I'm sure you too will learn something new (with a smile)[!
