Taught from a young age to culturally code switch, Chandra Arthur discusses how learning default conformity in different settings now creates access and opportunity in her adult life as an underrepresented minority (URM) in tech. Chandra Arthur is the founder and CEO of Friendish, a fun, new app designed to help people easily make friends based on shared interests. Her commitment to assisting others in making lasting, quality friendships was born out of a personal need when she returned home from Germany after four years abroad and found it difficult to make new like-minded friends once back in the states. As a second time startup founder, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the startup landscape. Chandra is passionate about being a Black woman in tech and hopes that through Friendish, she is able to build and grow a successful, sustainable business and become a role model for young women of color who aspire to careers in tech. Chandra is also a co-founder of B.O.T (Black Orlando Tech), a group created to mobilize and support Black creatives in Central Florida. When she’s not working on Friendish, she spends most of her time with her sweet and very energetic Black Lab puppy, Trudy Garland. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at www.ted.com/tedx
