Nicol Turner-Lee ’90
“I’m not a computer geek,” joked Nicol Turner-Lee ’90. “I took a computer science class in college, and when that class was over, I thought, ‘I’m done — I’m a true sociologist.’”
Despite her initial aversion to computers, Turner-Lee has come to realize the opportunities that technology can provide. In fact, she is now at the forefront of helping communities of color on both the consumer and professional sides of telecommunications. Recently voted one of the 60 most inspiring women in media by the Alliance for Women in Media, she is settling into her role as president and CEO of the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC).
