“I am immensely aware of how different I am in this environment.”

Erin Teague is the Director of Product at Yahoo! Fantasy Sports, and Broadly, a Vice property, followed her for a day. Not only is Teague an African American, but a woman engineer, a group makes up only 1 or 2 percent of the industry. Erin is responsible for designing the interface of Yahoo!’s fantasy gaming apps, which are used by millions of people every year.

Here’s what Broadly said:

From a humble background in suburban Michigan, Erin has flourished to become a dominating force in her field–and a rare one at that. As African Americans make up only one to two percent of employees at the leading tech companies in the US, Erin is especially cognizant of her position as a black woman and leader in the tech industry.
