Martha Elliott remembered walking into the office to interview for a web designer position when she was 40-years-old.
“The interviewer,” Elliott recalled, “looked puzzled and said, ‘I’m sorry we’re not looking for receptionists at this time. We’re looking for a web designer.’”
“I have to say that the early years were not easy,” Elliott told CMSWire about her effort to break into tech. “As a woman, and especially as a black woman, you had to constantly prove yourself over and over again.”
