I’m Shannon Morales, founder & CEO of Tribaja, a talent marketplace and community for Black and Latinx people looking to work in tech. What drove me to create Tribaja was my own experience with discrimination and feelings of isolation as an Afro-Latina woman in finance.
Before Tribaja, I worked in finance at Adobe and then as an innovation manager and consultant for large brands. I found new trends and built ideas to disrupt major corporations.
Tribaja has been named Hispanic Business of the Year in Philadelphia as well as made it into Forbes’ Next 1000 small business list.
When I’m not running Tribaja, I enjoy spending time with my three daughters or trying out a new place to eat.
Ask me about launching businesses in times of ambiguity and chaos, building diverse startup and tech ecosystems, how to create something out of nothing, big picture thinking, bias in the workplace, creating competitive advantages, or anything else!
