I’m Teneika Askew and I’m a leader in the US Navy’s first data focused consulting division, Data and Digital Transformation. I specifically lead the Data Science program delivering advanced analytics/AI/ML solutions and advisory services.
I am an engineer by nature, specializing in big data, with over 9 years of combined experience in entrepreneurship and IT consulting.
My personal mission is to improve access to big data and alleviate the technical assistance gap in entrepreneurship communities by driving growth for women and small businesses.
Before the US Navy, I was in consulting and at a tech company helping organizations understand how to create Agile and data driven organizations so they could begin to understand the stories behind their data.
My social entrepreneurial journey began when I founded the non-profits Ribbons of Beauty and BiCTech to mentor and advise high school women and student entrepreneurs in NC and DC. We impacted over 200 women and contributed to the economic advancement of 500+ minority women.
I currently help thousands of women pivot and enter technical fields by sharing resources to upskill, reskill or grow into your dream role via Twitter (@teneikaask_you) and LinkedIn (teneikaaskew). I've also help build and manage communities and DEI programs for my employers!
Ask me anything about entrepreneurship, mentorship, upskilling resources, big data, data visualization, or anything else!
