Tech Talent and Expat Bubbles in Kenya

White African discusses tech talent and expat bubbles in Kenya:

Say you are a Kenyan web designer living in Seattle, do you think anyone cares that you came from Kenya? No, they only care that you are a great web designer.

If you’re an American programmer working in Nairobi, does anyone care that you come from the US? Yes, for some reason that matters. You’re judged on where you come from as well as your skill set.

It’s not apples-to-apples, though it should be.

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
