Stacy-Marie Ishmael

Stacy-Marie Ishmael lives at the intersection of finance, media and technology. Currently, she works as a product manager at a technology startup in New York. Selected by Business Insider as one of the thirty most important women under 30 in technology in May 2013, one of her nominees commented or her unusual status in the technology industry, "The reason I'm nominating Stacy is that she is that most unusual person - a woman of color in tech who is brilliant at explaining why it's so important that we design technology for everyone, and not just women, but women who do not live in the middle-class world of most of us who read publications like Business Insider.
She spoke at WNYC’s recent Women in Tech panel at the Greene Space – she always makes me look at things in a new light. That day she pointed out that we are leaving out a huge number of poor women who could be hugely helped by technology, if only developers would design something for them.”

Ishmael describes herself as a “technologist, problem solver, team builder, teacher, and writer”. She lectures part-time at the Tow Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism, and her experience spans digital and social media, technology, and financial markets.
A dynamic and tenacious advocate for women and other minorities in the workplace, she is a sought-after speaker and panelist on issues ranging from mentorship to financial services.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPortofSpain, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPortofSpain event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Learn more about TEDx. Learn more about TEDx
