My name is Marcus Sawyerr.
I'm the CEO of EQ.Community. I identify as:
Marcus Sawyerr spent the last 15 years climbing from the front line to Executive of a Fortune 500 company focused on online recruitment and digital transformation along with a notable Microsoft Services Executive Board position. He’s witnessed only a surface level evolution of access to meaningful and life-changing jobs, especially for people of color.
He started as an inside sales rep armed with a powerful thirst for education and appetite to thrive. He was fortunate enough to build relationships and capabilities that propelled his career. With that said, he’s now turning his attention to providing the required access to empower capable & diverse talent to thrive as Founder & CEO of EQ.Community, a private members community (currently in stealth mode) for multicultural professionals interested in tech.
"Because I think when you're in the environment, of trying to move up the ladder, you're trying to progress and you're just going as fast as you can. Sometimes you don't see those challenges until you step back, and you reflect on it."
The EQ Community accelerates access to knowledge and connections by empowering people from diverse backgrounds. They’re bridging the gap between multicultural professionals and a world of meaningful opportunities.
