For more than 20 years Stacy Kirk has advocated for and facilitated representation, quality, and process innovation in software development as a tech entrepreneur. She recently trained a group of predominantly BIPOC participants from QualityWorks’ Agile Testing Bootcamp, a free training program with the goal of providing job opportunities to Americans who exist within marginalized communities. The program trains and places talent in companies looking for software testers, helping close the gaps of disparity and increase representation and diversity in the technology industry.
In 2010, Stacy founded QualityWorks Consulting Group, a global leader in software quality innovation and delivery, based in Los Angeles, California. In 2015, she expanded offices to Kingston, Jamaica to service clients in the United States, the UK, and the Caribbean.
Fueled by the discrimination she experienced as a Black woman in tech, she leads a 45+ and growing team of brilliant technologists and innovators, including over 46% women of color.
