Andrea Delgado Olson

This Year Andrea Delgado-Olson was announced as Executive Director of Natives in Tech team! Check out here interview with Medium:

Andrea Delgado-Olson
is a member of the Ione Band of Miwok Indians in the Northern Sierra Foothills of California. She is the Program Manager for Systers and GHC Communities at Anita B.org, as well as the founder of Native American Women in Computing, which she started after attending Grace Hopper in 2014. She wanted to connect with other Native women in tech for support and mentorship, but no such community had been started at the time. Fortunately, Anita Borg Institute was waiting for someone to start it, because like Andrea, they saw the need.

Andrea has been working on projects to preserve the Northern Sierra Miwok Language and pass it on to her children. She collaborated with Google and Udacity on the Android Basics Nanodegree course, Android Basics Multiscreen Apps, which uses the Miwok Language as its content. She has been recognized for her efforts in Native Max Magazine (pg. 51) as a Change Maker in the Native Community. She strives to lead this community and its members in a collaborative way that provides them with leadership opportunities that will continue to highlight Native American Women in Computing. These opportunities are a beacon for other Native women seeking other Native women in prominent positions to look up to as role models.
