About me

Hi everyone! I'm Alan Spivey, your guide to navigating the tech industry with confidence.

For the past 5 years, I've been immersed in the world of tech, having contributed to Robinhood's journey from a scrappy startup, through a massive growth stage, and an exciting initial public offering (IPO). This firsthand experience combined with a deep passion for inclusion led me to co-found Black Excellence at Robinhood, one of the company's largest employee resource groups. A big part of our mission was to foster diversity within Robinhood and the tech industry at large.

Beyond my co-founding role, I've worn many hats, including:

  • Partnering with recruitment teams: I've actively participated in job fairs, tech conventions, and recruiting panels, connecting diverse talent with exciting opportunities.
  • Developing inclusive recruiting programs: I've championed initiatives specifically designed to help individuals from non-traditional backgrounds break into the tech field. This includes dedicated programs for HBCU alumni.
  • Empowering individuals: I've created and delivered workshops tackling limiting beliefs and imposter syndrome, helping individuals confidently overcome these hurdles and thrive in their tech careers.
  • Mentoring the next generation: I've guided multiple mentees, supporting them on their journeys to successful tech careers.
  • Championing talent acquisition: As a recruiting ambassador, I've actively connected with prospective candidates, sharing my journey and Robinhood's culture to attract diverse talent.

My passion lies in helping individuals from diverse backgrounds find their place in the tech industry. Whether you're just starting out or looking to make a career switch, I'm here to offer personalized support, build your confidence, and foster a sense of belonging within this exciting field.
