Software for Good’s Liz Tupper was interviewed on the Women in Tech Twin Cities podcast — a show that, as they explain, “explores inclusion and intersectionality in the Twin Cities tech scene through shared experiences and a passion for technology.”
On the episode, Liz traces her journey in the tech industry, from her first experience with her brother’s Commodore 64 to founding a video game startup to choosing and creating her own role at Software for Good.
Her advice for others figuring out their career paths: “You do not need to follow the status quo. Follow and let the beacon inside of you help lead you where you need to go.”
She also speaks about Software for Good’s internship program, and how it offers hands-on experience with mission-driven clients. “People are way more excited to do impact work, right out of the gate,” she says of the up-and-coming developers who have been part of the program. “I love seeing this more intrinsic wanting to do good from the get-go.”
