My name is Sherrell Dorsey, and I am an award-winning data journalist, entrepreneur, speaker, and author teaching the world to redefine who gets to create and participate in the future.
In 2016, I founded The Plug, the first Black data-driven tech news publication to syndicate on the Bloomberg Terminal, which was acquired in 2023 by ImpactAlpha.
As a TED Tech podcast host, I provide in-depth analysis and commentary on technologies changing society and how these advancements can provide opportunities for more underserved Americans to participate in an increasingly automated and digital world.
My first book, Upper Hand: The Future of Work for the Rest of Us, published by Wiley in 2021, connects everyday people and communities to opportunities and resources to upskill or retrain for in-demand careers, both present and future, so that they do not get left behind in the sweeping changes technology is bringing across industries.
I have had the opportunity to walk across many stages as a keynote speaker, host, and moderator at some of the leading companies in the world, including Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Accenture, Bloomreach, Cisco, and others.
You can find some of my work featured in VICE, The Washington Post, Seattle Times, The Information, Columbia Journalism Review, and more.
I earned my stripes working for companies like Uber and Google Fiber. I hold a Master's in data journalism from Columbia University and a bachelor’s degree in international trade and marketing from the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Ask me anything about my journey into tech, data journalism, DEI in tech, the future of work, becoming a better advocate for marginalized communities, public speaking tips, going through an acquisition, or anything else!
Join us this Friday at 11am PT / 2pm ET for the Live Office Hour!
