Crystal Martin explains the importance of women being advocates for other women in business.

Crystal is the CoderGirl Program Director at LaunchCode and a Co-organizer of Strange Loop Conference. CoderGirl is an education program of LaunchCode designed to engage and educate women in the technology field in St. Louis making training and careers in tech easily accessible. As a Detroit Public Schools graduate, Crystal is passionate about equal access to education at all levels. She came to St. Louis as a 2010 Teach For America Corps Member and taught middle school math in St. Louis Public Schools for four years. After her time in the classroom, she wanted to explore a career that would allow her to bring together her love for creativity, science, and community and technology was just that! Crystal likes to call herself a “developing developer”, she’s a lifetime learning and is currently digging into JavaScript and fighting the patriarchy and imposter syndrome one key stroke at a time. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
