On this episode of the Disrupt Podcast we got the chance to sit down with Lenora Porter, Product Designer at IDT to talk about how she broke into tech without a computer science degree!
“I am just a woman in tech breaking stereotypes and taking names.
Without a technical background, I hustled my way into tech and redefined what it means to be a multi-passionate creative in a world of technology. I’ve blended my passion for art, technology, and psychology into a lucrative career called Product Design. During the day, I translate business requirements into beautiful app design. By night, I’m inspiring others through my Instagram design tutorials (@lenora.porter), Facebook Groups focused on design (Product Design | UI | UX | Web and Black Women in UX Design), and hosting local meetups (@dev.noir). My creative contributions can be seen if you take a look at apps from top companies like Levis, Magic Leap, Under Armour, Virgin Hotels, Cleveland Clinic, Sephora, Kate Spade, and BCBG just to name a few. Currently, I am a Product Designer leading the way for IDT Corporation’s mobile design team.
My mission is to inspire other women and minorities to take a fearless leap into the world of tech. Tech doesn’t thrive on software engineers alone, it needs those sympathetic, art-focused individuals to keep things above water. With natural talent, determination, and resilience, I believe anyone can transform the world one app at a time through design.”
